Instant Message Reminder Leads to $50,000 Scratch-Off Win

Annapolis woman claims second-tier prize on 50X The Cash instant ticket

It wasn’t until an Annapolis woman received an instant message to pick up Lottery tickets for her aunt that she remembered to buy her own games that day. The instant message came at just the right time for the lucky lady to buy a 50X The Cash scratch-off that wound up a $50,000 winner.

The happy player found her instant ticket at Chesapeake Market Citgo located at 502 South Cherry Grove in Annapolis. She frequently goes there to buy Lottery games. The scratch-off fan recalls she had $20 to spare on Lottery tickets and had to make a quick and very important decision.

“Do I buy one $20 ticket, or two $10 tickets?” the woman remembers saying to herself. Instead, she bought one $10 50X The Cash instant ticket. The loyal player only had to reveal a 50X symbol over $1,000 to realize her lucky day had arrived.

“I became weak and pale, and almost passed out,” said the Anne Arundel County resident. She then showed the instant ticket to the store clerk, who told her to go home. She did so and shared the great news with a few family members, who were all equally excited.

The private healthcare worker plans to use her newfound funds to buy a car. When she’s not working or playing Lottery games, she enjoys spending time with her children, watching TV and going on hikes and bike rides.

The 50X The Cash scratch-off went on sale in January as a member of the X The Cash family of games. She won the first of its 10 $50,000 prizes. There are also nine $100,000 top prizes remaining along with 27 $10,000 prizes and others ranging from $10 to $1,000.
