Annapolis Landscaping Employee Finds Enough Lottery Green to House Hunt

Lucky dad discovers $50,000 prize on Money Rush scratch-off

A Maryland Lottery scratch-off fan from Anne Arundel County has house hunting on his to-do list after winning a $50,000 second-tier prize on a Money Rush scratch-off.

The happy landscaping employee stopped by Lottery headquarters in Baltimore on Sept. 2 to claim his prize, smiling as he said he was very excited about his biggest scratch-off win to date. The Annapolis resident bought the $10 instant ticket at Quiet Waters Exxon located at 1000 Forest Drive in Annapolis. Returning to his vehicle after making the purchase, he scratched the game off and revealed a match with one of the winning numbers. Below the matching number was a $1,000 prize plus a 50X multiplier.

The married father of two said he plans to use his prize as a down payment for a house for his family.

The Money Rush game went on sale in July and still has six $100,000 unclaimed top prizes awaiting discovery along with six more $50,000 prizes and 19 $10,000 prizes. The new game is packed with smaller prizes, too, ranging from $10 to $1,000.
