D.C. Resident Lands Dazzling $50,000 Maryland Lottery Win

$20 Bonus Bingo X20 scratch-off delivers $50,000 prize

A Washington, D.C., resident who enjoys traveling across the state line for an occasional Maryland Lottery scratch-off is thanking his wanderlust this week. That’s because the 35-year-old’s most recent trip led to a $50,000 prize on a Bonus Bingo X20 scratch-off.

The occasional scratch-off player purchased the $20 ticket when he stopped into Maryland Lottery retailer the Sugar Shack, located at 6301 Seat Pleasant Drive in Capitol Heights.

The District resident scratched his ticket shortly after purchase, matching the caller’s numbers on his ticket to the bingo numbers on the puzzles. On one of the ticket’s eight cards, the prize legend indicated that he matched enough numbers to win $10,000. But before he could begin celebrating, the lucky player scratched the X multiplier spot on his ticket revealing a 5X bonus. And that quintupled his prize to $50,000.

“I felt like it was my time. This is a good win for me and my family,” said the winner.

Although he has no immediate plans for his winnings, the lucky winner said the $50,000 prize would be a huge benefit to his family.

The Bonus Bingo X20 ticket launched in August 2020, and this was the second of its $50,000 second-tier prizes to be claimed. There are still six unclaimed $500,000 top prizes, five more $50,000 prizes, 107 $10,000 prizes and thousands of additional prizes ranging from $20 to $5,000.
