Indian Head resident wins game’s $100,000 top prize
An Indian Head accountant who enjoys weekly outings with her sister to play Maryland Lottery games can count on lots of holiday fun this year. Her standing appointment, which led to a couple of $500 wins and a big $1,000 win last year, just gave her a $100,000 extreme scratch-off prize.
“I was with my sister when I scratched the instant ticket and saw the big win,” said “Cash Money Sister,” who is a mother of two. “We both screamed and checked the ticket a few times with the [Lottery] app.”
The 38-year-old found her biggest prize ever with a $100,000 Extreme Cash scratch-off bought at Charles Station in Waldorf. Her sister has logged several big wins at this Lottery retailer, including a $500 scratch-off prize. Typically, “Cash Money Sister” plays the $30 Rose Gold Black instant ticket because she hopes to win one of that game’s two remaining $2 million top prizes. Her game of choice on the day of her $100,000 top-prize win was the $30 $100,000 Extreme Cash game.
The Charles County woman said she will pay bills with her prize and buy holiday gifts. She also is planning a family vacation to either the Virgin Islands or the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.
Her lucky Charles County Lottery retailer, Charles Station located at 3030 St. Charles Parkway, is also a winner. The business earns a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning scratch-off.
The $100,000 Extreme Cash game launched in September and has 55 $100,000 top prizes awaiting discovery. Players can also search for 35 second-place prizes worth $5,000 each, and more than one million prizes ranging from $30 to $500.
