$10,000 Lottery Win Leaves Siblings Screaming with Joy

Claim top prize on 10x Cash scratch-off

196-10x-Cash-ITVM_P1-blueScreaming for joy inside a vehicle because they just won $10,000 on a Maryland Lottery 10x Cash scratch-off was definitely a change in routine for Brenda Pleasant of Glen Burnie and her younger sister.

The siblings started playing scratch-offs together to break up their daily routine. It just seemed there weren’t enough hours in a day. After working her full-time job as an exam coordinator, Brenda would go into caregiver mode. She and her sister would spend hours taking care of their mom. “By the time we were done, most of the day would be over,” Brenda said.

The pair came up with a ritual where they’d sit down, relax and scratch off a few instant tickets bought from their favorite Lottery retailer, Pops Grocery & Deli at 7459 E. Furnace Branch Road in Glen Burnie.

“We’d just go and buy a few tickets here and there,” said Brenda. “It’s a way for us to decompress and spend time with each other since we both have busy lives.”

On the day Lottery luck visited the duo, Brenda’s sister coaxed her into trying the $10 10X Cash scratch-off. They are among 64 players to win the game’s top prize.

“At first, I was just shocked,” Brenda said. “Then, we both started screaming with joy in the car. It was great.”

Brenda told Lottery officials that she may purchase new flooring for her home and start her holiday shopping early with her prize. Want to try your luck with this game? The 10x Cash instant ticket still has 21 $10,000 top-prize scratch-offs waiting to be discovered at Lottery retailers.
