Germantown Resident Claims First Top Prize on New Instant Ticket

Wins $100,000 on Bingo X10 scratch-off

A Montgomery County man who rarely plays Lottery games just made his luckiest random pick ever. A visit to a nearby Lottery retailer earned him a $100,000 top prize on a Bingo X10 6th Edition scratch-off.

The 47-year-old visited the Quince Orchard Shell gas station located at 501 Quince Orchard Road in Gaithersburg, which is near his workplace. He went to the Lottery kiosk and bought one of the $10 bingo-themed scratch-offs. A short while later, he discovered that the scratch-off he selected at random was a $100,000 top-prize winner.

“My body started shaking,” the player told Lottery officials, noting that the shock of his win was too much for him. He immediately called his wife and son to share the great news. The Germantown resident has no definite plans for his prize yet other than paying bills and paying off loans on his cars.

The $10 Bingo X10 game went on sale March 20. This the first top prize won out of seven. This game also offers players the chance to win 19 $10,000 prizes along with others ranging from $10 to $1,000. Our winner’s lucky Lottery retailer, Quince Orchard Shell, will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.
