Wins Top Prize on Instant Cashout Scratch-off

Last Friday, just as he regularly does, a Silver Spring resident purchased some scratch-offs. His Lottery experience turned out differently, though, as he scratched his Instant Cashout ticket and revealed a $250,000 win.

After scratching the ticket at the store, the 66-year-old raced home to show it to his family. After showing it to his kids, he called the Lottery to confirm it was a winner. “I’ve been playing for years and I always thought maybe tomorrow would be my lucky day,” said the winner. “Now, it has happened!”

Two of his four kids came with him to claim the ticket. We all had to see it to believe it,” said his one son. “He spent all weekend checking to make sure the ticket was still where he left it.” With his winnings, the retired construction worker plans to help his kids. The winning ticket was purchased at Giant, located at 2900 University Blvd. in Wheaton.

    Cathy: Player’s Club was temporarily removed from retailers in favor of other $20 games. We plan on re-launching the game sometime in early 2012.

    Buckey: Thanks for writing in. We get this comment a lot. People living in Baltimore believe all the winners are elsewhere and vice versa. Truth is the geographic locations of our winners are all random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.
