Pikesville player won big with Money Rush game

A Baltimore County woman is calling herself “Helpful Mom” because she is about to share her $50,000 prize from a Money Rush scratch-off with her adult children.

The lucky lady purchased the $10 instant ticket at Pikesville Giant #159 located at 3757 Old Court Road and scratched off her game in the store to reveal her win.

“It was amazing and weird at the same time. You’re always hearing about other people winning but it was weird because it was me,” said the Pikesville resident.

The 48-year-old works in special education and likes to read and go to the movies and concerts in her spare time. “Helpful Mom” doesn’t plan to tell her adult children about her Lottery luck but will share her winnings discreetly. She gave an example, such as buying extra and expensive holiday and birthday gifts, but not too many at once as that could give away her cover.

“It is best if I keep it a secret from them,” she said with a smile. “Helpful Mom” also plans to spend some of the prize on home upgrades.

She is the second $50,000 second-tier prize winner in this game, which went on sale in July. Eight $100,000 top prizes are still available along with seven unclaimed $50,000 prizes and 24 $10,000 prizes.
