$2,000 in cash giveaways highlight party
One might suspect that the excitement among the patrons of the Brass Rail Pub on Sunday afternoon was due to the thumping the hometown Ravens had just delivered to the Carolina Panthers. The victory certainly played a part in the festive mood, but there was much more going on to bring the good cheer. The Maryland Lottery was on hand awarding instant cash prizes as well as a pair of tickets to the upcoming Ravens game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Lottery communications staff visited the Brass Rail to spread the word about the popular Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off ticket. The instant ticket features a $1 million instant top prize plus an Internet promotion with the chance to win football-themed prizes like season tickets for life.
During the two-hour party, four attendees were awarded $500 cash prizes: Darlene Coursey of Pasadena, April Sobiech of Pikesville, Kenneth Crosson of Washington, D.C. and Linda Zaukus of Randallstown. Pasadena’s Ashley Yingling won the coveted pair of tickets to next month’s Steelers game.
The next Ravens Cash Fantasy party will be held at Corinthian Lounge and Restaurant on Monday, December 13th from 6 to 8 p.m. The Maryland Lottery will give away $2,000 in cash prizes – $500 every half-hour – and a pair of Ravens tickets for a home game at M&T Bank Stadium.
The $5 Ravens Cash Fantasy ticket is the second of its kind for the Maryland Lottery. The original, launched last year, holds the distinction of being the best-selling $5 scratch-off ever sold by the agency. This year’s ticket offers more than $11 million in instant prizes – including a still-available $1 million top prize. Like last year’s scratch-off, each ticket features a perforated portion with a special “EXTRA YARDS” code that players can enter on mdlottery.com/ravens. Players who enter their “EXTRA YARDS” codes on the Maryland Lottery’s website will have the opportunity to win premium prizes that include season tickets for life, 2011 season tickets, Ravens draft day party and trip to NYC, autographed footballs and numerous other prizes.
