Prince George’s County resident collects big win
A 58-year-old Maryland Lottery player from Berwyn Heights was a top-prize winner on a 50X The Cash ticket purchased at a Montgomery County gas station. The Prince George’s County resident found lucky number 22 on the last row of the ticket, which matched one of her winning numbers. And just below it was $100,000 prize.
This instant ticket belongs to a family of X Multiplier games. The five games — 5X The Cash, 10X The Cash, 20X The Cash, 50X The Cash and 100X The Cash — offer “Xtra Xciting” ways to win instant prizes of up to $1 million and second-chance prizes of up to $50,000. Enter non-winning “X” Multiplier scratch-offs into My Lottery Rewards to enter the second-chance promotion. The final “X” Multiplier second-chance drawing on April 28 will award two $50,000 prizes. The entry deadline is April 27.
The $10 game, 50X The Cash, has many instant prizes available for future winners to find including four more $100,000 top prizes, seven unclaimed $50,000 prizes and thousands of additional prizes ranging from $10 to $10,000.
When Maryland Lottery players win big, their favorite Maryland Lottery retailers win too. The Montgomery Mall Shell located at 10211 Westlake Drive in Bethesda will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the $100,000-winning scratch-off.
Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location. Winners typically get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
Winners can claim the prize immediately by mail or in person by appointment at the Lottery headquarters’ Customer Resource Center located at 1800 Washington Blvd. in Baltimore. Winners of smaller prizes can claim them by mail, at Lottery retailers, at casinos, or by appointment at Lottery headquarters.
