This “Lucky Grandma” found a $10,000 top prize on the Crab Cash scratch-off.
Bus-driving son picks up her $10,000 winning ticket in Jessup
Babysitting for her almost 1-year-old grandson while her son works as a Baltimore city bus driver is a “job” with lots of rewards. For example, the Baltimore resident gets to spend lots of time with her grandson and also gets Maryland Lottery scratch-offs delivered to her door!
Her son knows how much she enjoys playing instant tickets and she gives him $10 a week to buy Lottery games for her. He recently dropped off a $2 Crab Cash instant ticket that netted her one of the game’s $10,000 top prizes!
“I’ve been in the United States 20 years and have been playing scratch-offs, Powerball, Mega Millions … I almost won millions,” said the happy woman, who is a native of Nigeria. Winning the $10,000 prize is her biggest win to date and put a big smile on her face.
The day her son brought her the lucky scratch-off, she waited until he and her grandson left before sitting down to scratch off the game. Her son bought the instant ticket at Woody’s Liquor & Bar at 8806 Washington Boulevard in Jessup.
“Lucky Grandma” spotted a win immediately but went to a nearby Lottery retailer to confirm the amount of her prize. The 43-year-old said she will spend her winnings on her electric bill, donations to the homeless and more Lottery games.
The popular Crab Cash game that went on sale in April still has one more $10,000 top prize and two more $5,000 prizes available.
