Mother and daughter win $10,000 on Triple Green Crossword game
Two Maryland Lottery players calling themselves the “Scratch Collaborators” searched across, up and down to play their Triple Green Crossword extended play game. To their surprise, the instant ticket turned the collaborators into $10,000 winners.
The game was a fluke purchase, as the mother-daughter team had never tried an extended-play style scratch-off before. The thrilling win happened over the weekend after they bought the ticket at Keller’s Liquor Store located at 865 West 36th Street in Hampden. Deciding to try something different, the 58-year-old state administrator selected the $5 Triple Green Crossword scratch-off.
She tucked the ticket away, opting to scratch it off at home with her 79-year-old mother. When she did so, the Baltimore woman asked her “Scratch Collaborator” to help decipher the ticket. They each checked the scratch-off several times before taking it to a Lottery retailer to confirm the win.
The lucky collaborators have won Lottery top prizes before, including a $50,000 prize. The prior windfall allowed them to do a few things they dreamed of doing. This time, the duo says they have travel and birthdays in mind, with several trips planned and an 80th birthday to celebrate.
The Triple Green Crossword scratch-off launched in June and features a $50,000 top prize as well as a $10,000 second-tier prize. Three $50,000 top prizes are awaiting discovery at Lottery retailers, along with eight more $10,000 prizes.
