Becoming an adult never felt so good! Eighteen-year-old Olivia Bailey won $10,000 on a Gold Rush X100 scratch-off received as a birthday gift!

College student collects prize on new Gold Rush X100 game

While turning 18 is exciting for everyone, Cambridge resident Olivia Bailey can truly say that her birthday was a little more special than most. Olivia’s 18th birthday occurred last week and her mom decided to buy her a $20 Gold Rush X100 scratch-off earlier this week.

After scratching the instant ticket and seeing it was a $10,000 winner, the St. Mary’s College of Maryland theater student had one thing on her mind. “I couldn’t wait to claim my prize and get my picture taken with one of the big checks,” she told Maryland Lottery officials while beaming from ear to ear.

While in the Lottery Winner’s Circle today, the lucky Lottery novice could not stop smiling, taking videos and snapping photos. She plans to share most of her prize with her mom to help with bills.

Olivia’s mom found the winning scratch-off at Sailwinds Station, located at 511 Maryland Avenue in Cambridge.

The Gold Rush X100 instant ticket is part of the Gold Rush Family of Games that launched on May 20. The game has seven $1 million top prize and more than a million other prizes ranging from $20 to $50,000. In addition to the $20 game, there are also $1, $2, $5 and $10 Gold Rush tickets available for purchase.
