Baltimore Woman Numb After $100,000 Scratch-off Win

Claims $20,000,000 Cash Payout! game’s top prize

Every time family members visit a store that carries Maryland Lottery products, they know to get her a scratch-off, a Baltimore woman told Lottery officials. The 79-year-old doesn’t get around as well these days but her lack of mobility has produced no lack of scratching, thanks to her loved ones. The fun they have bringing instant tickets to her and the fun she has playing the games produced a $100,000 surprise for everyone last week.

“I was at the Food Lion in Glen Burnie on Thursday, so I made sure to stop by their Lottery vending machine,” said the winner’s daughter. “My mom especially likes $10 tickets so I chose $20,000,000 Cash Payout! I gave her the ticket when I got home, then went about putting away the groceries. Next thing I know, she’s yelling in the other room.” As she hurried into the room, her mom pointed at the instant ticket on the coffee table.

“I was so excited, it was almost impossible to believe,” said the scratch-off fan. “It was like I was frozen in place.” One by one, as family members arrived in the room, each confirmed the $100,000 top-prize match.

“I was sure one of them was going to tell me that it wasn’t real, but no one did!” she said. The loyal player said the first thing she wants to spend her prize on is a device to improve her mobility. After that, who knows?

One place that knows plenty about selling top-prize scratch-offs is Food Lion #2559 at 7069 Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie. The store earns a $1,000 bonus for selling this top-prize winning scratch-off. Players have claimed four of the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! game’s $100,000 top-prize scratch-offs, leaving two available. Also unclaimed are four $20,000 second-tier prizes.

A member of the Cash Payout family of games, the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-off is joined by the $15,000,000 Cash Payout!, $4,000,000 Cash Payout! and $3,000,000 Cash Payout! games. Brighten your wallet with one or more of these games.
