New Millionaire Attracted to Winning Scratch-off’s Yellow Color

Finds first $1 million top prize on 100X the Cash game

“I’ve played for 20 years,” said the new Maryland millionaire, with a big smile. “I never won this big until now!”

The happy Woodlawn resident’s choice of the $20 100X the Cash scratch-off came down to its bright color. He visited Ingleside Liquors at 5648 Baltimore National Pike in Catonsville to buy a six-pack of beer and one Lottery scratch-off. As always, the anonymous winner scratched off the instant ticket in the store and was shocked to see, on the bottom row, a 100X symbol over a $10,000 prize. No one picked up on his big win and he quickly grabbed his purchased beer and scratch-off and left the busy Baltimore County establishment.

A restaurant and construction worker, the winner plans to put the life-changing funds into the bank and then decide what to do with his prize. He may plan a trip to visit his mother, who lives in Central America.

The 100X the Cash game is one of six X the Cash scratch-offs on sale now that can help multiply your winnings, even on non-winning X the Cash instant tickets. You can win up to $2 million instantly or enter non-winning X the Cash scratch-offs into My Lottery Rewards to qualify for five second-chance drawings. Prizes range from $50,000 to $75,000.

Also winning a bonus because of its lucky sale is Ingleside Liquors. The Baltimore County business will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a $1 million top-prize winning scratch-off.
