Scratch-off Given as Holiday Gift Contains $100,000 Surprise

Worcester County woman claims top prize on Winter Cash Tripler game

A loyal Maryland Lottery scratch-off player received the perfect gift from her significant other for Christmas — a $10 Winter Cash Tripler scratch-off. What made the gift instantly better was revealing a $100,000 top prize.

“It was like, ‘Whoo, what is this?’” said the retail worker. The Worcester County grandmother of one and her significant other had numerous scratch-offs to play the day after Christmas, she said. The Winter Cash Tripler game he bought for her at Goose Creek #01 in Pocomoke City delivered the biggest prize.

The 69-year-old mother of two plans to put her winnings in the bank for now. She found the fourth top prize in the Winter Cash Tripler game, which still has four unclaimed $100,000 top prizes and 14 unclaimed $10,000 prizes.

The game is one of five holiday scratch-offs that players can enter into the Holiday Cash & Dash Second-chance Promotion. The next drawing deadlines are Jan. 6 and 13. Players simply enter non-winning Holiday Scratch-Offs through their My Lottery Rewards account for the chance to win over $500,000 in cash prizes or $300 worth of scratch-offs or the warehouse dash trip to Chicago. Warehouse dash winners get to race through a prize warehouse with a shopping cart, loading it up with as many prizes as possible in 90 seconds.

Sharing in the fun of the big win is the Worcester County Lottery retailer. Goose Creek #01 at 2322 Stockton Road in Pocomoke City earns a bonus of $1,000 for selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.
