Medical Worker Powers Her Way to $50,000 Scratch-off Win

Player is fifth top-prize winner on Power Cash game

A Baltimore County woman who only occasionally plays scratch-offs was in shock when she won $50,000 on a Power Cash instant ticket.

She was on her way to a friend’s house when she got the urge to purchase a scratch-off. The medical worker bought a $5 Power Cash game at the White Marsh Truck Stop and went home to scratch off the instant ticket. It took a few minutes for her to realize that she was a top-prize winner.

“I didn’t believe it. I thought I had only won $5,” she said with a smile.

Looking at her instant ticket, our winner next revealed a lightning bolt symbol. She was guaranteed the prize underneath of $5,000, but this prize had an additional 10X symbol. That increased the prize to $50,000.

“It just wasn’t a winner. It was the highest amount,” the northeast Baltimore County resident explained with excitement. She plans to use much of her prize to pay bills and will place the rest of the funds into a savings account.

Her lucky retailer also is a winner. For selling a $50,000 top-prize winning scratch-off, the White Marsh retailer located at 11424 Pulaski Highway in Baltimore County picks up a $500 bonus from the Lottery.

The $5 Power Cash scratch-off went on sale on Feb. 19, 2024. This is the fifth winner to feel the full surge of a $50,000 prize. There are still three top prizes unclaimed along with other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
