Montgomery County Man Wins Top Prize on $50,000 Cash Scratch-off

Same retailer sold $500,000 winning ticket in December

Sagar Beer & Wine in Gaithersburg seems to be on a lucky streak. The Lottery retailer has sold two big winning tickets in the past three months.

On March 29, a 43-year-old Montgomery County resident claimed a $50,000 top prize on the $50,000 Cash scratch-off ticket. In December 2022, a Gaithersburg resident claimed a $500,000 top prize on the Bonus Bingo X20 ticket that was also purchased at Sagar Beer & Wine.

The $50,000 Cash game debuted in December with 160 top prizes. This win marks the 38th time a Maryland Lottery player has uncovered a $50,000 win on the $20 game. There are also still 134 of the game’s $5,000 second-tier prizes remaining to be claimed as well.

The retailer also benefits from selling a top-prize winning scratch-off. Sagar Beer & Wine located at 615 S. Frederick Ave. in Gaithersburg will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling the $50,000 Cash ticket. The store received a $1,000 bonus in December when it sold the lucky Bonus Bingo X20 ticket.
