This happy pair of scratch-off players from Baltimore man won a $100,000 top prize.
Baltimore pair looking forward to future renovations
A Baltimore family has a deck renovation in mind after claiming the latest $100,000 top prize on a MONOPOLY™ X50 scratch-off.
The Baltimore City firefighter, who adopted the nickname “‘Bout Time” for his Lottery publicity, bought his winning scratch-off at the Soda Pop Shop located at 1026 Ingleside Avenue in Catonsville.
According to his wife, who joined him in the Lottery Winner’s Circle, the loyal players usually buy a book of scratch-offs to split. They followed that routine on April 18 when “‘Bout Time” took a few instant tickets and his wife took the remaining games. She scratched off and then scanned one of the $10 instant tickets using the Lottery app on her smartphone. The wife couldn’t believe her eyes.
“That’s not right,” she said, telling her husband, “you look at it.” She immediately passed the scratch-off to her husband. “That can’t be right,” said the shocked man, echoing his wife. However, the Lottery app was accurate: the couple won $100,000.
The high school sweethearts, who have been married for 16 years, could not believe their luck. Mr. “‘Bout Time” says they’ve won small Lottery prizes here and there, but never nothing this big. The duo is extremely excited about the win and plan to use the prize to build a new deck.
The Baltimore County retailer that sold the winning game will also receive a prize of sorts. The convenience store will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.
The MONOPOLY X50 scratch-off launched on Jan. 17, 2022, as part of the MONOPOLY Second-Chance Promotion from the Maryland Lottery. The following scratch-offs joined the $10 ticket: $1 MONOPOLY X5, $2 MONOPOLY X10 and $5 MONOPOLY X20. In addition, two FAST PLAY games were introduced: $3 MONOPOLY Game Tokens and $20 MONOPOLY Properties.
Players can enter any non-winning MONOPOLY™ scratch-off and winning or non-winning FAST PLAY MONOPOLY™ tickets into My Lottery Rewards for a chance to win cash prizes. There are six drawings, with each drawing awarding one Rolling Cash Jackpot and ten $2,500 prizes. A Rolling Cash Jackpot is a prize that starts at $2,500 at the beginning of each promotion period, and grows until the drawing date. Additional information is available at mdlottery.com/monopoly.
