Montgomery County man claims top prize on $100,000 Extreme Cash instant ticket

A dash of Lottery luck recently gave a Silver Spring sous chef a tantalizing $100,000 scratch-off prize. The player, who buys Lottery games each week, found his top-prize win on a $30 $100,000 Extreme Cash scratch-off.

The Montgomery County resident made a stop at Latino Market & Jewelry in Silver Spring. When he realized he won, “I was very happy,” the player said. He told Lottery officials that he plans to use his winnings to pay off loans.

His lucky retailer located at 2505 Ennalls Avenue will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for its role in selling a top-prize winning scratch-off worth $100,000. This instant ticket was launched in September 2020. There are still eight $100,000 top prizes remaining along with more than 82,000 other prizes ranging from $30 to $5,000.
