Riverdale Man Claims $100,000 Royale Prize

Casino Royale scratch-off yields big win

One week after revealing his $100,000 win, a Riverdale man claims his Casino Royale scratch-off prize. After purchasing the ticket last Monday, the 43-year-old immediately scratched it in the parking lot of the store.  Once he saw the three gold bars on the ticket, he realized he had won big.

The construction worker wanted to claim the prize that day, but first had to stop by MVA to straighten out a few things.  It wasn’t until a week later that he found himself heading to the Claims Center in Baltimore. “I was very anxious to get my money,” said the married father-of-three.  “I couldn’t believe I had to wait until after I went to MVA.”

The lucky winner plans to tell his wife the good news tonight during a special dinner. With his winnings, he plans to pay off his house, take a vacation and save the rest.  The winning ticket was purchased at Langley Park Beer and Wine, located at 1401 University Blvd in Hyattsville.

    The livin lucky drawing was supposed to be on 21 July why was it changed to 8 Aug?

      John: Due to some legal considerations we had to push the grand prize drawing back about one month. We regret having to do so as we are as excited about the final grand prize drawing as players are. The good news is we are able to add three more drawings to select 6 more winners each of $300 worth in Livin’ Lucky tickets. Good luck!

    have u thought of making a tag frame with the md lottery on it it will be a big seller or let them win when they get a scratch off

      John: If you can provide some more detail I would be happy to send the idea along to our product development team.

        I like the tag frame prize idea.

        I agree thats a cool idea! Something to go around the license plate that has the MD lottery logo on it. But then again, you have to think how a robber or thief would think. He may follow you home thinking you have lottery winnings at home. Its too much of a red flag that you have money. Cute idea though if you can tweak it.
