Former Fells Point Bartender Bellies Up to Big Win

Claims $10,000 prize playing 50X The Cash scratch-off

Shaken and stirred is how a former Fells Point bartender described her recent Maryland Lottery ‘magic moment.’ That’s because the 60-year-old Baltimore city resident just experienced a jolt of excitement, courtesy of a $10,000 winning 50X The Cash scratch-off.

The winner, a 30-year veteran of several sudsy Fells Point establishments, says she found her lucky game at US Mart in Dundalk and scratched off her $10 ticket on a Monday night. As she uncovered winning amounts on all 25 spots on the ticket, she saw $10, $100 and $1,000 prizes. When she tabulated her total, the former bartender had a bundle – $10,000 in total.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said the winner. “I thought I was imagining things.”

As the unbelievable became reality, the happy woman began to phone family and friends to share her good news. She plans to use the winnings to pay bills, buy four new tires and take a trip to Atlantic City.

Could luck strike twice? Players can take a chance to multiply their winnings by visiting the location of the lucky purchase, the US Mart on 2139 Dundalk Avenue in Dundalk.

There are plenty of unclaimed prizes remaining in this game. Players can look for six top prizes of $100,000, eight $50,000 prizes and 22 more $10,000 prizes. The 50x The Cash game is a member of the Lottery’s Multiplier Family of Games, which includes 5x The Cash, 10x The Cash, 20x The Cash and 100x The Cash instant tickets.
