Asa Daniels from Clinton celebrates his $250,000 Ravens Cash Fantasy
Prince George’s County Man Claims Top Prize
Three down, three to go. The Lottery’s popular Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off delivered the third of its six $250,000 top-prize wins today, when a man from Clinton visited the claim center with his family. The winner, a life-long Redskins fan, didn’t seem to mind the new Ravens connection that his win brings.
Asa Daniels purchased his lucky ticket during a shopping trip on Tuesday. He scratched it, checked his numbers, and then paused and checked them again. Asa’s glasses were at home so he was sure that the win he thought he saw was a mistake. With ticket in pocket, he went back to shopping. It wasn’t until he was home with his glasses, and with his wife and daughter to confirm, that Mr. Daniels finally believed that Lottery luck had truly found him.
The 71-year-old retired mechanic plans to share his winnings with his family – after, that is, he and his wife enjoy a nice vacation. While he’ll remain true to his Redskins, Asa admitted to officials that, thanks to Ravens Cash Fantasy, he’ll keep a good thought for the Baltimore team on Sundays. The $250,000 winner was purchased at Noah’s Supermarket, located at 7601 Old Branch Avenue in Clinton.
