Wins with 50x The Cash game
A Severna Park woman still basking in the glow of winning a $50,000 crossword scratch-off prize a few years ago returned to the Maryland Lottery’s Winner’s Circle to claim a prize double that size!
She had a feeling that she’d soon receive another visit from Lady Luck and she was right! The Anne Arundel County resident found Lady Luck waiting at Broadneck Exxon in Annapolis, where she stopped to pick up a few 50x The Cash scratch-offs to play before heading off to work.
“When I went into the store to buy my tickets, I asked the clerk to pick them for me,” she said. “When I first scratched the ticket, I knew I was a winner but I didn’t know how much I had won and that’s when I asked the clerk to scan the ticket. He told me he thought I had won big.”
When she realized her instant ticket was worth $100,000, she said, “I got the shock of my life.”
The 63-year-old mother plans to enjoy her prize by treating herself to a tropical beach vacation. “I haven’t taken a vacation in over 10 years,” she said.
Her Annapolis retailer is also a winner. For selling the top-prize scratch-off in the game, Broadneck Exxon located at 317 Busch’s Frontage Road in Anne Arundel County will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
The 50x The Cash game has five more unclaimed $100,000 top prizes, seven $50,000 prizes and thousands of others ranging from $10 to $10,000. The popular game is a member of the Lottery’s Multiplier family of scratch-off games, which includes 5x The Cash, 10x The Cash, 20x The Cash and 100x The Cash.
