Charles County Woman Hits It Big

Martha Mason - Red Line Bingo Tripler

Martha Mason and family celebrate her big win.

Wins $100,000 Playing Red Line Bingo Tripler Scratch Game

Martha Mason of La Plata had asked for “any” $5 scratch-off ticket last week while at the store. Imagine her surprise when she received the Red Line Bingo Tripler scratch-off with “Extended Play.” At first she was a little disappointed with the cashier’s choice, preferring a less involved ticket, but she didn’t stay upset for long; her ticket was worth $100,000.

“I was sort of annoyed that he gave me the ticket,” Mason told Lottery officials. She was sharing her frustration with her daughter-in-law when she noticed a win on the bingo-style ticket. Martha passed the ticket to her lottery “partner” to cash in and began scratching a second game. “I glanced at my daughter-in-law a few seconds later and saw the look on her face,” she explained. The ticket which she had been frustrated with only minutes before was now the source of her joy.

Mason, 76, headed home excited to share the good news with family, friends and the rest of the neighborhood. Her four children, who accompanied her to Lottery Headquarters, were very happy to share the moment with their mother.

She plans to share her winnings with her family and continue playing scratch-offs, most likely at her new lucky store, Absher Liquors, 6605 Crain Highway in La Plata.

Valentine’s Day Surprise Comes for Owings Mills Man

February 19th, 2013
Christopher Collins - Lucky Streak

“I seriously thought it was a dream,” said Chris.
“I tried to call everyone to let them know.”

Wins $50,000 Lucky Streak Scratch-off Top Prize

Christopher Collins was out looking to pick up some flowers for Valentine’s Day when he decided to buy a Pay Day Doubler scratch-off. The 19-year-old chef ended up finding one heck of a surprise when he scratched the ticket and revealed a $50,000 top prize.

After checking his ticket outside of the store he began shaking, “I seriously thought it was a dream,” Collins said. “I tried to call everyone to let them know.” He quickly went back home and woke up everyone in the house. While some of his family members were excited, some people still didn’t believe him. “He was just shaking while showing us the ticket, we couldn’t believe it!” his adoptive mother said smiling.

His family, including his wife and young daughter, accompanied him into Lottery headquarters yesterday to be a part of the fun. His wife certainly had a nice Valentine’s Day — courtesy of the new win. “He’s gotten me quite a bit of chocolate,” she laughed. “It’s been one of our best holidays so far.”

Collins plans to buy a car, a grill and start a college fund for his young daughter. The winning ticket was purchased at Giant Food #332 on 11604 Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown.

Zhi Quang Yu - Double Cash

Zhi Qiang claims his $100,000 Top Prize.

Baltimore County man wins Double Cash $100,000 Top Prize

There is nothing like going to the grocery store and leaving with a winning $100,000 scratch-off ticket. That’s exactly what happened to Zhi Qiang Yu while shopping for groceries with a long-time friend. Zhi Qiang Yu scratched his Double Cash ticket before leaving the store and knew immediately that he won the $100,000 top prize!

His first reaction was disbelief. “I was in shock,” the winner said. Yu’s friend and his daughter, who were by his side when he won, came with him to celebrate his good fortune at Lottery headquarters. Both of them were equally shocked when they learned about Zhi Qiang Yu’s news.

This single man, who doesn’t have any children, is eager to use his winnings to go on a vacation to China. The lucky ticket was purchased at the Safeway #1657, located at 10335 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills.

Maryland Lottery Awards Ravens Cash Fantasy Top Prizes: $1 Million Cash and “Season Tickets for Life*”

February 15th, 2013
Reynolds and Bunch - Ravens Cash Fantasy

Beth Bunch and Marl Reynolds show off their big
Ravens Cash Fantasy second-chance prizes.

Two additional $25,000 drawings remain

No one would know the football season was over judging by the cheering, clapping and purple Ravens gear sported at Lottery headquarters today. The Maryland Lottery welcomed Mark Reynolds of Eldersburg and Beth Bunch of Dundalk as they claimed their ultimate Ravens Cash Fantasy prizes this morning. Both winners had been selected during the second-chance drawings held earlier in the month for $1 million and “Season Ticket for Life.”

Reynolds, who took home the $1 million prize, had been purchasing the $5 Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off tickets throughout the football season, but never thought he would be the person to walk away with one of the second-chance drawing prizes. “As soon as I found out I had won, I went out and bought $125 worth of Ravens gear! I still can’t believe it,” he said. He and wife Kathy told Lottery officials that they plan to use their winnings for their daughter’s college tuition and will put the rest away for retirement.

Bunch, who won the “Season Tickets for Life” prize, had only three entries in the drawing and was selected out of 136,816 entries. She said that while she has many friends who would like to go to games with her, she promised her promised her father Larry that they would go to the season opener this together.

More than 100 Lottery players have won a variety of second-chance prizes through this year’s Ravens Cash Fantasy contest including Ravens season tickets, trips with the team, gameday packages, cash prizes and more. For a complete list of winners, visit

There two additional $25,000 drawings that will take place on Thursday, February 28 and Thursday, March 28, 2013. The $5 scratch-off ticket still has two $250,000 instant top-prizes remaining and is available at the more than 4,300 Maryland Lottery retail locations across the state.

Second Big Multi-Match Win From Western Maryland

February 15th, 2013

Sharpsburg Woman wins $625,000 Jackpot

The Maryland Lottery’s Multi-Match game is hot. Since 2013 began, there have been three jackpot winners — two of which are from Washington County. The most recent, a 66-year-old Sharpsburg woman and regular Multi-Match player, won the $625,000 Multi-Match jackpot this past Monday night.

“I found out I won late Monday night when my twin sons woke me up with the news,” she said. “They came knocking on my door screaming that I had hit the jackpot.” Her sons checked her ticket online and saw that all her numbers matched. After checking and double checking the winning ticket, the mother-of-six and grandmother-of-one, called a family meeting on Tuesday evening to share the good news. They even skyped with her daughter so she would not be left out.

The big winner nervously claimed her prize today, accompanied by her eldest son. “She was so shaky, she could barely write her name,” he said. The Weis Supermarket employee is grateful for her win and said she is going to share the winnings with her family and pay off some bills. Her son added that they will also help their mom invest some of the winnings for her retirement.

The winning ticket was purchased at Boonsboro Exxon located at 719 N. Main Street in Boonsboro. This is the second Multi-Match jackpot win in Western Maryland in recent weeks. A Hagerstown man claimed a $575,000 jackpot win on January 25th.
