Wins $50,000 scratch-off prize
On a normal day, this 48-year-old Baltimore woman usually plays just Pick 3 and Pick 4, occasionally adding a scratch-off to the mix. Lucky for her, she decided to purchase a 5X Cash Club ticket a couple weeks ago while getting her other numbers at YNS Check Cashing in Baltimore. That ticket made her $50,000 richer.
The hospital worker waited to scratch the ticket until she arrived home. After revealing the big prize, the excited winner had to decide where to keep the ticket until she was able to bring it to Lottery headquarters.
“I hid the ticket in a drawer and then I moved it to my car,” she said. “Then, I thought that the car wasn’t the best place to keep it, so I moved it to my office. I was so nervous that I finally realized I just needed to bring the ticket in to Lottery and get it out of my hands.”
The winner, who has not told anyone about her windfall, is extremely excited to pay off her bills and start living debt free. The 5X Cash Club ticket has one $50,000 top-prize remaining.
YNS Check Cashing is located at 2101 E. Monument St. in Baltimore. For selling the top-prize winning ticket, the retailer will receive a $500 bonus.
