Rainy Day Driving Delay Leads to Big Scratch-off Win

Landover player claims $20,000 prize on instant ticket

Heavy rain one Thursday afternoon led a Landover driver to pull off the road, which resulted in a deluge of Lottery luck. The 50-year-old pulled over to wait out the storm at her favorite Maryland Lottery retailer and wound up winning $20,000 on the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-off game.

When she first arrived at Crestview Wine & Spirits in Landover Hills, the loyal player got a feeling that one of the Cash Payout family of scratch-offs was packed with luck. She faced a tough decision: which of the instant tickets should she pick? The family of scratch-offs offers a $10, $5, $2 and $1 game. She purchased one of the $20,000,000 Cash Payout! scratch-offs and didn’t win. Following a “gut” feeling, the player bought one more of the $10 instant tickets and discovered the $20,000 prize. Her lucky win at the store, which is located at 6705 Annapolis Road, is this player’s biggest prize to date!

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend, the scratch-off fan plans to get gifts for the family and make sure all of the moms enjoy a great day. She also will spend some of the prize on her spouse and herself.

The $20,000,000 Cash Payout! game is packed with prizes. Players can look for three unclaimed $100,000 top prizes, seven more $20,000 prizes and 14 $10,000 prizes.
