The Week in Winners: $1 Million Prize in Columbia, $100,000 Big Spin Win Highlight the Week

Statewide prizes total more than $31 million as 29 tickets with $10,000 or more

The biggest Maryland Lottery prize of the past week was a $1 million scratch-off win on a ticket sold in Columbia. But perhaps the Lottery’s highlight of the week came on the morning of May 6, when a lucky lady from Baltimore visited the Winner’s Circle room at Lottery headquarters and became the first player to spin The Big Spin Wheel.

THE BIG SPIN is a $5 scratch-off game that launched April 22 with eight top-prize tickets that earn each winner a visit to the Lottery’s office for a whirl of The Big Spin Wheel, a 6-foot-tall wheel with prize amounts ranging from $50,000 to $250,000. The Baltimore woman’s spin resulted in a $100,000 prize.

Meanwhile, a FAST PLAY player in Bowie got a six-figure progressive-jackpot-winning surprise, and scratch-off players in Baltimore City and the St. Mary’s County community of California each won $50,000.

All told, the Maryland Lottery paid more than $31 million in prizes during the seven-day period ending May 12, including 29 tickets worth $10,000 or more that were sold or redeemed during that span.

Winners of prizes larger than $25,000 must redeem their tickets at the Maryland Lottery Claims Center in Baltimore, which is open by appointment only. Prizes of up to $5,000 can be claimed at any of more than 400 Expanded Cashing Authority Program (XCAP) locations. All Maryland Lottery retailers are authorized to redeem tickets up to and including $600. More information is available on the How To Claim page of
