Earlier today, an elated winner came into Lottery Headquarters to claim her $30,000 Cash Craze Crossword top prize. The Baltimore woman, who is a frequent Lottery player, couldn’t believe that she won. “I was happy when I had reached $1,000 on the puzzle and by $5,000 I was screaming,” the winner said with a laugh. When finally reaching $30,000, the 61-year-old was jumping for joy. “I’m still in disbelief. I haven’t taken it all in yet,” she said.
Still on a high from her win, the nurse extender has only told her daughter-in-law about her fortune so far. With her cash prize, she plans to go to Atlantic City and to pay some bills. She also intends to continue playing the Maryland Lottery.
The winning ticket was purchased at Dundalk Citgo, located on 1111 Dundalk Avenue in Baltimore City.
