Elated Winner Scores Big with Ravens Seats for 20 Years

February 17th, 2016
Brenda Grier won Ravens Seats for 20 Years.

Brenda Grier becomes the seventh Maryland Lottery player to win coveted top prize

If you are looking for Brenda Grier on a Sunday afternoon during football season over the next 20 years, look no further than M&T Bank Stadium. The Glen Burnie resident found out today that she was this year’s Ravens “Seats for 20 Years” winner. The once-in-a-lifetime prize includes two club-level tickets to every pre-season and regular-season game, along with parking.

“I can’t wait to share this prize with my grandchildren,” said the overjoyed grandmother-of-five. “They are going to be so excited.”

The avid Lottery player was one of the Ravens second-chance finalists who gathered at M&T Bank Stadium to find out if they had won the highly sought-after prize. All six were already winners, having received $10,000 just for being selected. The other finalists were: John Beall from Middletown (Frederick County); Sharon Christensen from Severn (Anne Arundel County); Kenneth Council from Edgewood (Harford County); Calvin Pierce from Waldorf (Charles County); and Darrell Reich from Takoma Park (Montgomery County).

Before this morning’s big announcement, finalists and their guests enjoyed a private tour of the stadium, snapping photos and grinning from ear to ear. With the overcast sky above and the football field below, the anxious group was then led outside to watch the Jumbotron, which would reveal the winner’s name. After seeing her name on the screen, 55-year-old Brenda jumped in the air, screamed and hugged the closest person she could find – Ken, a gracious finalist to her right. Brenda’s husband, Ronald, stood by and calmly watched his wife celebrate the moment.

For the seventh year in a row, the Lottery partnered with the Baltimore Ravens during the 2015 football season. Players entered non-winning Ravens scratch-offs into their My Lottery Rewards account. Once a ticket was submitted, entrants could select which prize category they wanted to enter, including “Seats for 20 Years”, Away Trip with the Team, Game Day Packages and cash.

The finalists were selected from more than 132,000 entries submitted for the “Seats for 20 Years” prize. Throughout the season, more than 432,000 entries were received for the entire second-chance contest.

Past winners of the “Seats for 20 Years” include Kim Feather from Pasadena; Dawn Brink from Stevensville; Vanessa Williams from Rosedale; Beth Bunch from Baltimore; Vernon Miller, Jr. from Bel Air; and Tuesday Johnson from Germantown.

Trip Across Bay Bridge Pays $50,000 for Burtonsville Woman

February 16th, 2016
Patricia Pressley_$1 Million FortunePatricia Pressley won a $50,000 prize on the $1 Million Fortune scratch-off ticket.

Stevensville retailer sells $50,000 winner in $1 Million Fortune scratch-off game

On a recent trip across the Bay Bridge, Patricia Pressley decided to stop at the Friendly Food Store in Stevensville for breakfast. While there, she noticed a woman buying scratch-off tickets and took that as a sign that she should try her luck as well.

Patricia purchased three tickets, one of which was a winner, but not a big winner. However, she took that as another sign. She bought three more tickets, and one left her speechless: Patricia won $50,000 on a $1 Million Fortune ticket.

“I couldn’t believe it,” the lucky lady said, adding that she doesn’t play Lottery games often. Her largest previous prize was $100 on a scratch-off ticket.

“I couldn’t go to sleep,” Patricia said, adding that she waited anxiously for days before she was able to make it to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim her prize.

The Burtonsville woman has three children, but hasn’t yet shared her great news with them. She said they will find out once she surprises them with a puppy. So far she has only told a few friends. Patricia also plans to use her winnings to go back to school for nursing. She enjoys helping others and just wants to give back.

Patricia found the last of the $1 Million Fortune ticket’s $50,000 prizes at Friendly Food Store, located at 1383 Main Street in Stevensville. But the $20 ticket still has one of its $1 million top prizes waiting to be found.

New in Town: Recently Relocated Baltimore Resident Wins $10,000

February 16th, 2016

After four short months living in Maryland, retired school worker wins on Poker Showdown ticket.

220-Poker-Showdown-ITVMA 72-year-old woman decided that after living in Massachusetts for more than 59 years, she would relocate to Maryland to be with the rest of her family. The move has proven to be a lucrative one for the retired public school system worker. After just four short months of living in Baltimore, she won a $10,000 prize on the Poker Showdown scratch-off ticket.

She decided to buy the ticket when she and a relative stopped at the 7-Eleven at 1465 Key Highway in Baltimore.

“I remember just feeling numb after I realized I had won that much money,” she said. “I was really shocked because all those years I lived in Massachusetts, I never won anything even remotely close to what I won here.”

The excited winner, who is originally from Puerto Rico, said she decided to purchase a Poker Showdown ticket because poker is her favorite card game. She added that she plans to use the money to pay off bills and take a trip to Puerto Rico.

Poker Showdown debuted in August, and three of its $100,000 top prizes still haven’t been claimed. There also are eight more $10,000 prizes waiting to be found at Lottery retailers across the state.
