A Washington, D.C. couple who acted on an impulse to play Maryland Lottery holiday scratch-offs found their magic moment with a $50,000 Holiday Cash top-prize win.
After enjoying a nice lunch last weekend, they were driving home when one of them suggested stopping to buy scratch-offs. They spotted a Maryland Lottery logo at Cha’s Auto in Hyattsville and walked inside, hoping to cross paths with Lady Luck.
The pair bought four of the new $5 Holiday Cash game because they were in the holiday spirit. Eager to see if they won, they scratched off their games at the Prince George’s County Lottery retailer.
Within three scratches, the big win came into view. “I was in complete shock,” one of winners said. “I thought it was some kind of error or mistake.” Filled with excitement, the couple tried to play it cool at first but wound up jumping up and down with joy in the auto shop.
They plan to save the winnings for the future and maybe another nice lunch. Joining in on this big win is Cha’s Auto located at 5818 Riggs Road. For selling a top-prize scratch-off, the store earns a $500 bonus from the Lottery.
The couple found the second top-prize scratch-off in the game. Five more top prizes are awaiting discovery, along with thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
