Buying Home for His Peeps with Scratch-off Prize
The 59-year-old scratched off his $50,000 Platinum Crossword winning ticket in January, keeping it in a plastic bag until he could bring what he thought was a $20,000 winner to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. His confusion ended when the Lottery Winner’s Lounge door opened and he saw a giant check for $50,000 with his name on it. “What? $50,000! Look at all those zeroes!” he said, grinning. That’s no chicken scratch!
The Bridgeville resident favors the Maryland Lottery’s $5 bingo scratch-offs. On Jan. 18, the day of his big win, the grandfather of twins bought two bingo scratch-offs but didn’t win.
“Something said to play the crossword puzzle,” the bachelor said. “I don’t like the puzzles but something said, ‘Play the puzzle.’ ” When he decided to buy a $3 puzzle scratch-off, his instinct insisted he buy the $5 scratch-off, instead. Our lucky player bought two $5 Platinum Crossword scratch-offs and returned to the store with a winning ticket that he thought was worth $20. Not so, said the clerk, who didn’t reveal the amount of the prize but directed the Sussex County resident to head to Baltimore. He showed the ticket to another player, who thought it was worth $20,000. Even his fiancé thought the scratch-off was worth $20,000.
“I’m shocked,” the man said. “This is the most I’ve ever won in my life.”
After years of renting, our happy winner plans to use the prize as a down payment on a house for his family and the twin peeps. “I need a home for the grandbabies,” he said. Our winner found his Lottery luck at Goose Creek #10 at 105 Delaware Ave. in Hurlock.

Claims $50,000 Top Prize on Monopoly Scratch-off
Talk about a winning streak! Five months ago, Valerie Anderson of White Plains won $27,000 at the Dover Downs Casino. Only one week ago, she won $120 on a Maryland Lottery Monopoly scratch-off and she just visited Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim a $50,000 win on another Monopoly scratch-off.
Her latest round of good fortune arrived just before the 49-year-old began her workday. Valerie arrived at her job at Andrews Air Force Base early and bought four Monopoly scratch-offs. Her second $5 ticket contained the number 30, which she realized matched one of the four winning numbers on that ticket. Below the number 30 was the figure, $50,000.
“Am I looking at this ticket right?” she remembers thinking to herself. Deciding that she had indeed won $50,000, the elated but calm player phoned family members to share the news. Her two daughters congratulated her while her mother thought she was just kidding about the win.
Valerie works as a contract specialist at the base in Prince George’s County. The Charles County resident plans to spend her newest prize on a winter holiday cruise, paying off her new car and some other bills. She found her Lottery luck at Blue Wing Café located at 1500 West Perimeter Drive in Camp Springs.
The Monopoly game, which launched in January, has three $50,000 top-tier winning tickets remaining in Maryland stores and a second-chance contest to win $50,000.
Claims $50,000 Prize on Bonus Match 5 Drawing
The lucky winner of the Maryland Lottery’s March 8 Bonus Match 5 $50,000 jackpot is no stranger to winning big lottery prizes. In fact, the Pennsylvania resident has won two $50,000 Maryland Lottery scratch-off prizes in the last decade.
“I am on a five-year plan,” said the Red Lion resident, smiling. The 61-year-old won $50,000 playing a $5 scratch-off game in 2004 and, five years later, arrived at the Lottery to claim a $50,000 prize from another $5 scratch-off game. The year 2014 rolls around and, right on schedule, he’s back in the Lottery Winner’s Lounge to claim yet another $50,000 prize!
“I expect to be back in another five years,” said the happy man.
This lucky winner works for a defense company and is contemplating retirement in the near future. He has a grown son who will receive the gift of a motorcycle from his winnings. The rest of his prize will go toward bills and his bank account, the man said.
He bought his winning ticket at Tobacco Etc. at 98 Cranbrook Road in Cockeysville, becoming the 7th Bonus Match 5 $50,000 winner this year. Two winners have yet to come forward to claim their prizes from the Feb. 4 and March 6 drawings. Those tickets were sold at the Sunoco A Plus in North East and the Shore Stop #225 in Hebron, respectively.
In cooperation with the National Council on Problem Gambling, Governor Martin O’Malley has declared March to be Responsible Gambling and Problem Gambling Awareness Month in Maryland. The public awareness campaign provides information about Maryland’s responsible gambling initiatives and resources as well as the warning signs of problem gambling.
Four casinos are open in Maryland and two more are slated to open by the end of 2016. Maryland’s casinos offer a safe and fun environment where visitors can spend discretionary entertainment funds. While the majority of the population is able to enjoy gambling in a responsible manner, approximately 3.4% of Marylanders do face some sort of gambling addiction. Though the percentage is small, the personal and financial costs of this addiction are often devastating.
Since the first casino opened in the state in 2010, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission (MLGCC), in collaboration with other partners, has implemented programs and services to promote responsible gambling and problem gambling awareness.
The Maryland Voluntary Exclusion Program (VEP), established in 2011, allows residents to legally ban themselves from casinos and from playing Maryland Lottery games. Participants are subject to arrest for criminal trespass and fines if found on casino property and agree to forfeit their winnings if they play Maryland Lottery games.
“The Voluntary Exclusion Program is an effective tool of personal responsibility,” said Stephen Martino, Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency (MLGCA) director. “The program reflects our continued commitment to promote responsible gambling.”
Another resource is the Maryland Alliance for Responsible Gambling (MARG)’s website, mdgamblinghelp.org. MARG is a statewide partnership formed in 2011 to coordinate and maximize Maryland’s resources. Its website provides information about the toll-free problem gambling helpline (1-800-522-4700), offers help finding counselors, provides statistics and advice for those affected by gambling addiction, and offers information on how to sign up for the state VEP.
“We are committed to remaining vigilant in promoting responsible gambling throughout our state, and I commend MLGCA Director Stephen Martino and his MARG colleagues for making our efforts a reality,” said Governor Martin O’Malley. “The resources available for those who suffer from gambling addiction and their families are comprehensive, easily accessible, and further illustrate the state’s commitment to the well-being of its citizens.”
The MLGCA is responsible for all matters relating to regulation of the state’s casinos. In this regulatory role, the agency oversees all internal controls, auditing, security, surveillance, background investigation, licensing and accounting procedures for the facilities. To keep Marylanders informed and maintain integrity and transparency in its regulation of the state’s casinos, the MLGCA posts monthly financial reports on casino revenue on its website, gaming.mdlottery.com.
College student Destiny Musser of Baltimore, who is new to playing Maryland Lottery games, just won $24,000 on a 24 Karat Cash scratch-off
Finds top prize on the 24 Karat Cash scratch-off
Destiny Musser, who turned 18 in October, waited a few months before following in her father’s footsteps and playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs. While her dad has searched for a top prize for years, however, the Baltimore college student already found her first top prize! She just uncovered a $24,000 top prize while playing a 24 Karat Cash scratch-off in the parking lot at a convenience store.
Destiny was with her boyfriend at a White Marsh 7-Eleven when they both decided to buy five of the $3 scratch-offs. “We bought five and didn’t win anything, and then we went back in the store and bought three more,” she said. Those three tickets did not win, either, but this game is eligible for My Lottery Rewards points toward second-chance drawings, prizes, digital downloads and local business discounts. Knowing there were multiple top prizes available on the game, Destiny returned to the store and bought two final scratch-offs. She gave one to her boyfriend to scratch off and kept one to scratch off.
“We knew there just had to be a winner,” Destiny said.
She was correct! His ticket won $30 and her scratch-off held a $24,000 top prize. Destiny told Lottery officials that she was completely shocked. The young woman asked her parents to accompany her to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim her prize and gave her father a preview of what it’s like to win big.
The quiet, happy winner plans to put the money toward her future family, as she is expecting her first child this year. “This is going to get her started off on good footing,” her mother said.
The winner found her destiny at the 7-Eleven #33266 located at 8235 Perry Hall Boulevard in White Marsh. There are four remaining top prizes and seven $1,000 second-tier prizes on the 24 Karat Cash ticket.
