Maryland Lottery Welcomes New Millionaire

Player claims top prize on 100X The Cash instant ticket

A lucky Baltimore scratch-off player just joined some exclusive company. Thanks to a top-prize winning 100X The Cash scratch-off, he is now a member of the Maryland Lottery millionaires’ club.

The 53-year-old found his lucky $20 instant ticket at Royal Farms #091 located at 920 West 36th Street in Baltimore. He matched one of the winning numbers in the fourth row of player numbers and then revealed the $1 million prize beneath.

“I just got lucky,” the happy winner said. “At first, I thought it was only a $20 winner, I couldn’t believe it.”

The city resident shared his great news with a few close friends and relatives, who he said were even more excited than he was about the $1 million prize. When asked of his plans for his winnings, the happy player said he’s going to buy a new house and a new car and treat his family to something nice.

The 100X The Cash scratch-off, which went on sale in November, features prizes from $20 to $1 million. This is the third $1 million prize won on the scratch-off, which has three top prizes remaining along with six $50,000 prizes and eight $10,000 prizes.

This instant ticket belongs to a family of X Multiplier games. The five games —5X The Cash, 10X The Cash, 20X The Cash, 50X The Cash and 100X The Cash — offer “Xtra Xciting” ways to win instant prizes of up to $1 million and second-chance prizes of up to $50,000. The final second-chance drawing is April 28.

Royal Farms is in the money, too, receiving a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning scratch-off worth $1 million.
