Owings Mills Retired Salesman Scratches His Way to $20,000 Win

A $20,000 scratch-off win will send Richard Hamburger of Owings Mills on a trip to meet his newest grandson.

Finds luck with $20,000,000 Payout! scratch-off

Many a salesman lives by the motto, “You win some, you lose some.” A retired Baltimore County sales representative certainly won “some” from the Maryland Lottery by playing the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! game. Richard Hamburger of Owings Mills just claimed the $10 game’s $20,000 second-tier prize.

“My wife and kids didn’t believe me because I told them I won so close to April Fools’ Day,” Richard said. “They thought I was playing a trick on them.”

The grandfather of two plays the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-off every chance he gets. The 67-year-old also enjoys the $10 WILLY WONKA GOLDEN TICKET™ scratch-off, the $5 $50,000 Diamonds instant ticket and other $1 scratch-off games. The married player has won $1,000 twice, so he was very excited to win $20,000 with the scratch-off purchased at Sam’s Wine & Spirits located at 11130 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills. As soon as he confirmed his $20,000 prize, Richard started planning what to do with his windfall.

“I will use this money to go see my new grandson in St. Louis,” Richard said. “While I’m there, I will probably take the family to a nice dinner. I’m looking forward to having a great time with my family. As a cancer survivor, I try not to lose focus of what’s important in life.”

This scratch-off is packed with unclaimed prizes, including four $100,000 top prizes, 10 more $20,000 prizes and 17 $10,000 prizes. A member of the Cash Payout family of games, the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-off is joined by the $15,000,000 Cash Payout!, $4,000,000 Cash Payout! and $3,000,000 Cash Payout! games. Also, these games have a second-chance promotion that gives players with non-winning scratch-offs a chance to win $2,500 cash prizes. Find out more at My Lottery Rewards.
