Lucky County Cops Shoot Off High-Fives after $50,000 Scratch-Off Win

These law enforcement officers found their Lottery luck in Parkville.

 Men find Lottery luck playing Gold Rush X100 game

Watching a man’s non-winning scratch-off experience inspired two police officers to test their own Lottery luck with instant tickets from the Gold Rush X100 game. They aced the test! One of their three Gold Rush X100 scratch-offs sent the men rushing to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim a $50,000 prize.

The lucky law enforcement officers, ages 34 and 37, found their big win at 7-Eleven #23703 located at 9410 Harford Road in Parkville. They watched a player buy and play several Gold Rush X100 instant tickets with little to no success before deciding they might have better luck. The duo bought three instant tickets. They struck out with the first scratch-off, struck gold with the second instant ticket by finding a $50,000 prize and nabbed a $100 prize on the third scratch-off.

As soon as they realized they won $50,000, the two men shot each other a high-five in celebration. The Bel Air and Forest Hill residents happily shared news of the exciting win with their families. Both men have worked as county police officers for over 10 years. When asked of their plans for the prize, the winners both said their share of the windfall would go to home improvement projects.

The Gold Rush X100 scratch-off is a member of the Gold Rush family of games that went on sale in May. This win leaves the $20 game with four more $1 million prizes, six $50,000 prizes and hundreds of thousands of other prizes ranging from $20 to $10,000. Other games in this fun family are the $1 Gold Rush X5, $2 Gold Rush X10, $5 Gold Rush X20 and $10 Gold Rush X50 scratch-offs.
