Wins cruise vacation for two playing Cruise for Cash scratch-off

The New Carrollton man was looking for cash, but to his surprise he won a seven-night cruise for two playing the Cruise for Cash scratch-off ticket. “I’m excited,” the winner said with a smile.

“I’ve been playing this ticket since it came out,” he said. “The ticket looks so nice, I’ve just continued to play.” The self-employed contractor was dropping off his employee at the Riverdale BP gas station after work and decided to purchase one Cruise for Cash scratch-off.

Later, at home, he scratched the ticket and discovered his prize, but he still hasn’t told a soul about winning the cruise. The 52-year-old intends to surprise his wife with the trip and will buy an extra ticket for his daughter. “They’ve been trying to plan a trip since my daughter’s graduation a few months ago to no avail,” said the winner.

The winning Cruise for Cash ticket was purchased at the Riverdale BP, located at 5500 Kenilworth Ave. in Riverdale.
