Cockeysville Friends Split $50,000 Scratch-off Prize

Teamwork pays off for 20X The Cash top prize

Long-time friends and loyal Lottery players, two Baltimore County women visited Lottery headquarters this week to claim a prize they won together scratching the 20X The Cash scratch-off game. Their $50,000 top-prize win could not have come at a better time.

The duo told Lottery officials that they take turns picking the game and paying for the tickets,  always with the understanding that they’d split any cash won.

“It was my turn to pick and I always play $5 games,” Partner #1 reported. “I was disappointed because I hadn’t had much luck with the $5 tickets the store had, and then I noticed the 20X The Cash game.”

The popular multiplier ticket had been lucky for her in recent weeks.

Partner #2 scratched the ticket and immediately caught her breath. “I said, ‘You’re not gonna believe this.’”

Her first swipe had uncovered a $5,000 win, but the Lottery veterans knew that it was not yet the time to celebrate, that there might be more cash hidden under that latex.

“By the time I finished, it added up to $50,000,” said Patner #2. “We were both running around the store. It was just crazy.”

Both Cockeysville women – one a housewife and the other a nurse – have been going through some rough times. Through tears, Partner #1 told us that her winnings would make a tremendous difference in her life. Her Lottery partner shared similar thoughts.

This Lottery team found their lucky winner at Team Spirits at 588 Cranbrook Road in Cockeysville. For selling the winning ticket, the lucky retail location will receive a $500 bonus. The 20X The Cash game still features four top prizes of $50,000 and more than 600,000 prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
