Claims $50,000 prize on MONOPOLY X20™ scratch-off
A lucky Eastern Shore resident enjoyed a classic case of beginner’s luck, taking home a $50,000 win just as she began playing Lottery scratch-offs. The 26-year-old took a liking to the new MONOPOLY™ X20 instant ticket and won its top prize.
The happy Salisbury woman visited Royal Farms #140 located at 10988 Red Run Boulevard in Owings Mills. She stopped there to grab a soda to go with her sushi. When she saw the $5 scratch-off, she liked it so much that she bought 13 of them. Once she scratched off her instant tickets later that day, the nursing assistant learned that she was a winner.
“I cried and almost fainted!” the happy winner recalled. Shortly afterward, she shared the news with her mother, who was equally excited.
The lucky lady just began working as a traveling nursing assistant. The Wicomico County resident enjoys shopping when she’s not working or playing Lottery games. She plans to use her winnings to buy a house and a new car to go with her new career.
Her lucky Lottery retailer is also a winner. Royal Farms #140 will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling a $50,000 winning scratch-off.
The MONOPOLY™ X20 scratch-off launched on Jan. 17, 2022, as part of the MONOPOLY Second-Chance Promotion from the Maryland Lottery. The following scratch-offs joined the $5 ticket: $1 MONOPOLY X5, $2 MONOPOLY X10 and $10 MONOPOLY X50. In addition, two FAST PLAY games were introduced: $3 MONOPOLY Game Tokens and $20 MONOPOLY Properties.
Players can enter any non-winning MONOPOLY™ scratch-off and winning or non-winning FAST PLAY MONOPOLY™ tickets into My Lottery Rewards for a chance to win cash prizes. Six drawings will take place, with each drawing awarding one Rolling Cash Jackpot and ten $2,500 prizes. A Rolling Cash Jackpot is a prize that starts at $2,500 at the beginning of each promotion period, and grows until the drawing date. Additional information is available at mdlottery.com/monopoly.
