Wins $50,000 on Diamonds and Gold Doubler game
“Reina the Queen” enjoyed a royal welcome at Maryland Lottery headquarters this week as she and her husband claimed a $50,000 top prize on a Diamonds & Gold Doubler scratch-off.
The Montgomery County couple purchased the $5 instant ticket at Best Beer, Wine & Deli in Gaithersburg. The regal scratch-off caught their eye because it is a new game.
“We play scratch-offs,” said the cheerful husband, “but we have never won big like this before!” The 46-year-old winner added, “We were really surprised that we won.”
The excited Gaithersburg residents plan to pay off some bills and save some of their winnings for a rainy day. The Montgomery County retailer, which is located at 18749 Frederick Avenue, will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize scratch-off in the game.
Diamonds & Gold Doubler still has plenty of prizes remaining, including six more $50,000 top prizes and thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
