Landover player wins with Deluxe Crossword game
“I finally won big,” proclaimed a Maryland Lottery player from Landover, who collected a $50,000 top prize on Jan. 20 on the $5 Deluxe Crossword scratch-off game.
She’s been playing for many years and her previous personal best wins were all in the $100 range. The Prince George’s County resident plays a few instant tickets every week, saying, “I like the winners and it’s just fun.”
She prefers scratch-offs, adding that she enjoys scratching to play the games and also scanning them with the app on her smartphone to double-check whether they are winners.
With the proceeds from her $50,000 prize on the seventh edition of the game, she plans to pay some bills, help out some family members and put a little bit away. And, she’s planning a steakhouse dinner to celebrate.
Playing the Lottery also is in her future. As she put it when saying goodbye at Lottery headquarters, “I’ll be back anyway for the millions!”
Also having reason to celebrate is Shoppers #2383 at 10501 Martin Luther King Jr. Highway in Bowie. The Prince George’s County grocery receives a bonus of $500 from the Lottery for selling the $50,000 top-prize winning instant ticket.
