Pasadena Man Spells His Way to $10,000 Lottery Win

Finds luck playing Crossword Deluxe scratch-off

261-Crossword-Deluxe-ITVMThe path to a big win on a Maryland Lottery crossword scratch-off is similar to that for winning a spelling bee – how you do depends on the words you’re given! One Anne Arundel County resident spelled his way to a $10,000 win on his favorite crossword scratch-off game, the $10 Crossword Deluxe.

The 86-year-old winner has his daughter to thank for bringing home not only his favorite scratch-off but also one that carried the five-figure prize. She visited Parkway Chevron located at 2756 Annapolis Road in Hanover and bought the first Crossword Deluxe scratch-off she saw. She then helped him scratch off the ticket.

“I had to do a triple take when I first saw it,” the lucky winner said. This isn’t his first big Lottery win, he said. The Pasadena resident won $15,000 on a $3 crossword scratch-off several years ago. The latest win comes at a perfect time for the retiree, who plans to use his prize for gifts for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

There are still thousands of unclaimed prizes remaining on this ticket, including one $100,000 top prize, four more $10,000 prizes and others ranging from $10 to $1,000.
