Rockville Man’s Nine-Letter Word for Winning: Crossword!

Finds $10,000 Deluxe Crossword scratch-off win

A parcel delivery worker from Rockville received a special package from the Maryland Lottery that contained a huge surprise – a $10,000 win on a Deluxe Crossword scratch-off.

The 51-year-old, who runs an international parcel delivery service out of the Montgomery County area, told Lottery officials that he purchased the $5 scratch-off at Ollie’s Beer, Wine & Deli in Rockville while running errands.

He confirmed his $10,000 win using the store’s ticket checker. “I was so excited,” the winner said. This marks the lucky player’s biggest win to date and he plans to share the funds with family members and pay down his mortgage and auto loans.

The $5 Deluxe Crossword scratch-off launched in March and still has lots of unclaimed prizes. Players can look for four $50,000 top prizes, 11 $10,000 prizes and thousands of others ranging from $5 to $1,000.
