Silver Spring Man Thankful for $50,000 Scratch-off Win

Finds last top prize remaining on Fantasy 5s game

246-Fantasy-5s-ITVM_P1-blueA 26-year-old Silver Spring man is still savoring his pre-Thanksgiving win of the final $50,000 top prize remaining in the Fantasy 5s scratch-off game.

The grateful player, with his friend by his side, claimed the prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. The lucky winner is a big fan of Maryland Lottery scratch-offs and very excited about his big win. He has not yet decided what he will do with his windfall.

The lucky scratch-off was the last of seven $50,000 top-prize winners in the $5 Fantasy 5s game, which launched in February. The happy player found his winning ticket at Value Dollar located at 8030 New Hampshire Avenue in Hyattsville. The Prince George’s County retailer will receive a $500 bonus – equal to 1 percent of the prize value – for selling a top-prize scratch-off worth $20,000 or more.
