Father & Son Lottery Players ‘Hit it Big’

Claim $10,000 prize on Hit it Big scratch-off

207-Hit-It-Big-ITVM_P1-goldA Silver Spring father and son have house hunting on their minds after a lucky Maryland Lottery scratch-off gave them $10,000 toward a down payment.

The 30-year-old son found his Lottery luck with a Hit it Big scratch-off and said that $20 game is one of his three or four favorite scratch-offs. He bought it at Wheaton Winery located at 2211-B University Boulevard in Silver Spring.

When he scratched off the $20 ticket, he couldn’t believe his luck – at first. “I had my doubts,” said the Montgomery County resident. He soon realized that this lucky win was large enough to require a trip to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim the prize he is sharing with his 58-year-old dad. The happy men retrieved their prize together.

The Hit it Big scratch-off still has two $1 million top prizes remaining, along with one $50,000 prize and 15 $10,000 prizes.
