Finds top prize on $5 Super Ca$h game
A lucky shopper left her local grocery store with a purchase that is bound to put a smile on anyone’s face — a $50,000 winning Super Ca$h scratch-off!
The Nottingham resident became the game’s 5th top-prize winner after purchasing the $5 instant ticket at Giant #128 in Timonium. The 69-year-old celebrated with Maryland Lottery staffers in the Winner’s Circle by taking photos of her ceremonial check and sharing her winning story.
The number 26 was the lucky number on her scratch-off that made her $50,000 richer, instantly. The Baltimore County resident signed the back of her instant ticket and brought it to Lottery headquarters in Baltimore to claim her prize.
Her lucky Lottery retailer is also an instant big winner! The Lottery will give Giant #128 at 2145 York Road in Timonium a bonus of $500, equal to 1 percent of the prize, for selling a top-prize winning scratch-off.
Super Ca$h instant tickets went on sale on Nov. 18. Their popularity has propelled them from the number 9 to the number 6 spot this week on the Maryland Lottery’s Top 40 Scratch-Offs chart. Four of the original nine $50,000 top prizes are still awaiting discovery along with six $5,000 prizes.
