Spur-of-the-Moment Decision Scores $100,000 Win for Baltimore Woman

Takes home top prize on Big Cash Riches scratch-off

A lucky Baltimore woman made a last-minute decision to purchase a Big Cash Riches scratch-off last week at a gas station and returned home with a $100,000 win.

The 34-year-old took the instant ticket to her car to scratch it off. As soon as she realized it was a top-prize winner, she drove home to share the news with her husband. They then made an appointment for the next day to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore.

The self-employed winner rarely plays Lottery games but decided to try her luck with this purchase. She and her husband plan to save most of the prize.

The retailer that sold the lucky instant ticket also wins! Marriottsville Crown at 9802 Liberty Road in Randallstown will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a $100,000 top-prize winning scratch-off.

The Big Cash Riches game went on sale in December 2021. This lucky winner scooped up the final top prize on the instant ticket. There is still one unclaimed $20,000 prizes and two $10,000 prizes remaining along with others ranging from $10 to $1,000.
