Baltimore County player claims game’s top prize
Holiday gifts are coming early for some Maryland Lottery players this year, such as a Sparks resident who won $50,000 playing the new Holiday Luck X5 scratch-off.
The 32-year-old found nine different winning numbers along with an instant win spot on the $5 game bought at Giant #322 in Reisterstown. The matching numbers added up to $45,000 and, to finish it off, our Baltimore County player got an instant WIN 5X spot with a $1,000 prize.
The happy player, who was shocked at such a big win, plans to use the game’s top prize to pay debts and share some of the windfall with immediate family members.
The Holiday Luck X5 scratch-off and the Multiplier Holiday family of games went on sale Oct. 19. Other members of the family are the $1 Holiday Luck ticket, $2 Holiday Luck X2 and $10 Holiday Luck X10 games. The Lottery also offers the scented $3 Peppermint Payout X3 scratch-off this year as part of its holiday lineup.

Also in the money is the Lottery retailer that sold this top-prize winning scratch-off. Giant #322 at 11604 Reisterstown Road in Reisterstown will receive a bonus of $500 from the Lottery. Our winner left plenty of prizes remaining in the Holiday Luck X5 game, including six more $50,000 top prizes and a dozen $5,000 prizes.
