Baltimore Retail Worker Shocked by $50,000 Lottery Win

Claims prize on new 50X the Cash scratch-off

“There is just something about this ticket,” said the lucky man sitting in the Winner’s Circle at Maryland Lottery headquarters. The Baltimore native plays scratch-off games every now and then. He was so intrigued by the 50X the Cash instant ticket that he purchased one and is now celebrating a $50,000 payday.

Because he seldom plays Lottery games, the 27-year-old doesn’t have a particular Lottery retailer that he frequents. One the day he found his winning scratch-off, the player was at a relative’s house when someone suggested he visit a nearby retailer. That lucky retailer was ING Wireless located at 3835 Erdman Avenue in Baltimore.

“This is the one right here,” he kept saying to himself once he bought the $10 instant ticket. Soon after, he realized that wasn’t just positive thinking. He really had a $50,000 winner!

“I was in shock,” the happy man said. He had scratched off his instant ticket right there in the store and kept cool about his win. Even now, he has told only a few family members and friends of his Lottery luck. He plans to save his windfall for now.

A retail employee for five years, the winner has also played in a football league as a wide receiver for two years.

The 50X the Cash game just launched on Jan. 20. There are still lots of prizes remaining including six $100,000 prizes, seven more $50,000 prizes and 28 $10,000 prizes. A member of the Multiplier Family of Games, the 50X the Cash scratch-off has a second-chance promotion. Players can register non-winning scratch-offs from the Multiplier family of scratch-off games through My Lottery Rewards for a chance to win additional prizes in the Multiplier second chance contest.
