Maryland Lottery Players Strike $10,000 Gold in Towson, Gaithersburg

Big Money Maker scratch-off also yields a big score for Forest Hill player

Two Maryland Lottery players from Baltimore and Gaithersburg who picked up Gold Rush scratch-offs recently ended up making the trip to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim $10,000 prizes.

Also scratching a $10,000 win was a player from Forest Hill, who got lucky playing Big Money Maker.

On July 1, a 65-year-old woman from Baltimore cashed in her winning Gold Rush x50 instant ticket for a $10,000 third-tier prize. She bought the lucky $10 scratch-off in Towson at Quick Mart located at 8604 Loch Raven Boulevard. Gold Rush x50 has a top prize of $100,000, and five of those remain unclaimed as well as nine $50,000 prizes.

On July 2, a 47-year-old player from Gaithersburg paid a visit to Lottery headquarters to claim her $10,000 prize on a Gold Rush x100 instant ticket. The hot $20 scratch-off came from Brighton Beer & Wine at 225 Muddy Branch Road in Gaithersburg. Another 126 prizes at the $10,000 third-tier level remain at large in the game, along with 12 prizes at the $50,000 level and six top prizes at the $1 million level.

Gold Rush×100 and Gold Rush×50 are in the number 4 and 5 spots on the Maryland Lottery Top 40 Scratch-Offs chart.

Big Money Maker, which made its Maryland Lottery Top 40 Scratch-Offs chart debut this week in the number 2 slot, helped knock the Gold Rush games down the chart a few notches. Cashing in on a $10,000 winning Big Money Maker scratch-off was a 52-year-old man from Forest Hill. He traveled to Lottery headquarters July 2 for his payday on the $10 instant ticket bought at the Rock Spring BP at 1500 Rock Spring Road in Bel Air. His big win leaves 38 $10,000 prizes remaining along with all eight of the $100,000 top prizes.

Congratulations to these winners!
