268-Cash-Craze-Crossword-ITVM_P1_orangeA Baltimore couple is beyond grateful after winning more than they expected while playing their favorite Maryland Lottery crossword scratch-off, Cash Craze Crossword.

“I thought we were originally winning $1,000,” the Baltimore resident said. “Then, it turned out to be $10,000.”

The couple says they play many Lottery games but are frequent players of scratch-offs such as The Price is Right. Cash Craze Crossword tops their list of must-buy games and they spotted what turned out to be their lucky $3 instant ticket at Loch Raven Check Cashing. The retailer is located at 1314 Goucher Boulevard in Towson.

“We just started playing Cash Craze, it’s definitely one of our favorites,” the lucky woman said. “We are so grateful for this, it is truly a blessing. The most we have ever won before is $50.”

She said the pair plans to continue playing because Lottery luck continues to show up. “I have a winning ticket here in my bag right now,” she said.

The great-great-grandparents believe blessings should be shared. They plan to split their winnings among their family members.

“I will share it with my children, their children and my grandchildren and even my great-great grandchildren,” she said.

The Cash Craze Crossword game launched in early June and all eight of its $30,000 top prizes are waiting to be found at Lottery retailers across the state. The lucky Baltimore couple claimed the first of the instant ticket’s $10,000 prizes, but there are still seven more available, along with thousands of other prizes ranging from $3 to $5,000.
