Second Emerald 10s top prize awarded
A Baltimore retiree visited her favorite Lottery retailer, Stadium Amoco, the day after the Maryland Lottery launched its new September scratch-offs. While in the store, she purchased several instant tickets including the new $10 Emerald 10s instant ticket. The 73-year-old then took the games home to scratch.
“I was scratching the ticket and kept seeing those $10,000 prizes,” said the excited grandmother. “The more I saw, the more I knew they were going to add up to $100,000.”
Although the lucky winner doesn’t know exactly what she’ll do with her big top prize from the new game, she does plan to pay off debt.
The new Emerald 10s ticket launched on Monday, Sept. 26. A lucky Pasadena woman claimed the first $100,000 top prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. This game has hundreds of thousands of prizes remaining including six more $100,000 prizes and 19 unclaimed $10,000 prizes.
For selling the winning $100,000 Emerald 10s ticket, Stadium Amoco wins too! The Baltimore city retailer located at 500 East 33rd Street will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
