Ravens Cash Fantasy Top Prize Winners Announced [VIDEO]


Other prizes include Ravens cheerleader trip and 2012 season tickets

Applause, flashing cameras and cheers greeted two stunned Ravens Cash Fantasy players today. The Maryland Lottery staged a surprise presentation to award the most sought-after prizes in the scratch-off’s Internet promotion — $1 million and season tickets for life.

John Menzel from Salisbury was shocked to learn is Maryland’s newest millionaire. Vanessa Williams from Baltimore could barely contain her excitement upon learning she would be attending every Ravens home game for the next 20 years with the season tickets for life prize.

The drawing, which was held Thursday, also awarded many other Ravens-themed prizes.  Allen Lewis from Oxford won season tickets for 2012. Both James Brown from Baltimore and Roger Sheppard from Crownsville won trips-for two to the Bahamas for the Ravens cheerleader calendar shoot.  Amy Stolarski from Annapolis, Jessica Smith from Hagerstown, Nyhuya Johnson from Annapolis, Marti Stepner from Baltimore and John MacDonald from Newark, DE each will receive an entire suite for 24 people at a Ravens home game next year.

For the third year in a row, the Lottery partnered with the Ravens to launch the Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off. To enter the promotion, players scratched the perforated section at the bottom of their Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-offs and entered the extra yards online.

There are still chances to win on the Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off.  The ticket, which is more than 95% sold, still has two instant $250,000 top-prizes remaining.
