Nursing home employee hits the jackpot this past holiday weekend
For two days, a Baltimore County woman had a lucky scratch-off ticket in her purse and didn’t know it. During the recent Thanksgiving holiday weekend, she purchased four scratch-off tickets, one of which was the Bingo Times 10 scratch-off. Instead of scratching the entire ticket, she scratched only the barcode portion and checked it at a local retailer. The message advised to visit Lottery headquarters and the experienced player knew it was more than $500. She immediately put the ticket in her purse and forgot about it for a few days. Then while she was getting her car worked on, she scratched the rest of the ticket and discovered that she had won a $50,000 cash prize. “I screamed in silence when I found out how much I won,” she said. After discovering her fortune, she went to Lottery headquarters to claim her prize.
The 37-year-old nursing home worker did not tell anyone at the time but plans on immediately telling her mother of her newfound fortune. She also plans on sharing the news with other family members, do some holiday shopping and pay for some work on her home. The winning ticket was purchased at Woodmoor Shell on 7001 Liberty Road in Baltimore.
Wins $50,000 Prize Playing Super Bonus Crossword Game
Michael Hamilton, of Windsor Mill, got his holiday season started with a bang last week, with a $50,000 win. The 27-year-old truck driver and fan of Maryland Lottery instant games stopped by Lottery Headquarters to pick up the top prize he won playing the Super Bonus Crossword scratch-off game.
Michael picked out the winner on Tuesday night at the 7-11 at 7410 Windsor Mill Road in Baltimore on his way home from work. He chose the ticket after having had luck with it in recent weeks. “I bought two, one for me and one for my wife,” Michael told officials. “We scratched them together and I knew right away that I’d won.” He just wasn’t sure as to how much he’d won, “As I kept seeing more words, we got more and more excited.”
There was lots of celebrating but little sleep in the Hamilton household that night. It took them a while to believe it was true and then to share the news with friends and family. “No one believed us, everyone thought we were joking.” Michael and his wife plan to make this Christmas especially memorable for their family. “We’re going to share this happiness with everyone we love.”

Well, what can I say. I am one of those people that never win anything, but thought I would give Ravens Cash Fantasy a try. I can tell you that they do give out the tickets. I won tickets for the Ravens vs. Bills game.
This was my first time to see the Ravens play in Baltimore. The seats were very good at around the 20-yard line on the visiting teams side of the field. A parking pass was included and the access in and out of the stadium was easy to navigate.
I must admit that the atmosphere was very good as about 99% of the people were in their purple and black and were into the game. It was refreshing to see such support of the home town team.
I myself am a native of Washington, DC and have been a fan of the “other team” down I-95. That’s the way it is and will always be that way. But I will root for the Ravens as my AFC favorites.
Overall the weather was good that day and the fans were fantastic. It was very enjoyable. Thank you Maryland Lottery.

Wins $30,000 Top Prize on Cash Lines Scratch-Off
Saturday’s birthday get together was especially special for one Talbot County man. The brand-new 23-year-old was out celebrating with friends at his favorite Lottery retailer when he made his lucky purchase. “We were playing Keno and then one of my friends bought a Cash Lines ticket,” said the winner. “I decided to buy four of the same ticket.” He played two of the four scratch-offs at the store to no avail. He then made his way home where he and his wife of almost ten months would get the thrill of a lifetime. With his spouse by his side, he scratched the third ticket to reveal the $30,000 Cash Lines top prize. “We couldn’t believe it,” the lucky winner said.
The couple will split the $30,000 Cash Lines prize money. The birthday boy intends to pay off his car and scratch more tickets. Still in disbelief, his wife doesn’t know yet what she wants to do with her share. Both are keeping quiet about their win. So far, only family members are aware of their newfound fortune. The winning ticket was purchased at Easton Super Soda, located at 326 East Dover St. in Easton.
I started preseason football off with with two Ravens Cash Fantasy Scratch-off tickets. Both were small winners including 20 yards a piece. I bought two more during the week and my fiance’s mother bought two tickets at the state fair. She also had a winner and decent yards. She gave me her yards, but kept the money.
I had just enought for one entry for the 2010 season tickets. I figure go big or go home so I entered. A few days later, I got a call in the middle of the day from the Maryland Lottery office. I thought it was a survey because the agent asked me a few questions before telling me I was a winner. When she told me I just about fell on the floor in shock. I think I smiled the whole week. I was elated. I told everyone.
I finally went to my first game and I was shocked all over again. It was only the second Ravens game I had ever been too. The game was awesome. The weather was perfect. The fans were hyped, and the Ravens won! I have been to a few games since and am still in shock.
I love the Ravens and the Maryland Lottery. I am still playing the Ravens Cash Fantasy scratch-off. Season tickets for life and the million dollars is still out there.
