$5 Double Your Money Scratch-off Turns into $50,000 Top Prize

Anne Arundel County resident finds lucky scratch-off at Pasadena retailer

Although the scratch-off is called Double Your Money, a Pasadena player won far more than double his $5 purchase of the game while visiting a Lottery retailer. The happy man just claimed one of the instant ticket’s $50,000 top prizes at Maryland Lottery headquarters.

The game, which joined the Lottery lineup on Feb. 22, has prizes starting at $10 to double the return on its purchase price. Although there are a number of ways to win on this ticket, the lucky Anne Arundel County resident did so by finding his match to the winning number 12 on the last row of the play area. Underneath the number 12, the 56-year-old found the $50,000 top prize.

Lottery retailer Cheers Liquors has something to celebrate, too! The Anne Arundel County business located at 2940 Mountain Road in Pasadena will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the $50,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.

Maryland Lottery players are winning big every day so get in on the fun. The Double Your Money scratch-off still has two $50,000 top prizes remaining along with five $5,000 prizes and more than 310,000 prizes of $10 to $1,000.
