School Employee Claims $10,000 Top Prize on 10x Cash Scratch-off

“Mr. Lucky” keeps winning with instant tickets

Another lucky player found a $10,000 top-prize winning ticket in the 10x Cash scratch-off game! The popular $10 game still has 37 unclaimed top prizes remaining, along with thousands of prizes ranging from $10 to $1,000.

A Howard County Public School System employee who plays scratch-offs from time to time found his lucky instant ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 6590 Old Waterloo Road in Elkridge. “Mr. Lucky” has several $500 and $1,000 scratch-off wins in his past.

“I am just lucky,” he said, smiling.

The 48-year-old always does the same thing when he discovers a winning ticket while at a Lottery retailer. He quietly puts the scratch-off in his pocket, goes home and shares the good news with his parents. The Howard County resident brought his parents with him to claim his prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. He’s putting the money in the bank to save his winnings to enjoy later.
