Germantown Mom Wins $50,000 on Deluxe Crossword Scratch-Off

April 12, 2017

A mother of one from Germantown, decided to pass the time with a friend at an Aspen Hill laundromat playing Maryland Lottery scratch-offs left with lots more than clean laundry. The Germantown resident discovered a $50,000 top-prize-winning Deluxe Crossword instant ticket.

   The winner found her lucky scratch-off at Aspen Hill Laundromat in Silver Spring. “I was doing my laundry,” she said the winner opted not to be identified in the Maryland Lottery release. The mom and her friend decided to try their luck at the laundromat’s instant ticket vending machine. The winner’s friend has gotten lucky with several winning instant tickets of $300 and $400 in the past, and she enjoys playing crossword scratch-offs but had never won a big prize.

   They bought the machine’s last four Deluxe Crossword games and she started scratching them off. The sight of the $50,000 prize on her winning scratch-off left them both speechless.

   “There were no words, no words,” said the 32-year-old winner. In addition, they hesitated to draw attention to themselves at the busy Montgomery County laundromat. “We didn’t want to say anything,” she said. That changed as soon as they got her clothes folded and exited the business. “We felt very excited,” she said.

   The winner, a restaurant manager, brought her friend and her mother with her to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Baltimore. She plans to spend her winnings on paying bills. Her lucky Lottery retailer also wins. For selling a $50,000 top-prize scratch-off in the game, Aspen Hill Laundromat, located at 14021 Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, will receive a $500 bonus from the Lottery.

   The Deluxe Crossword game has five more unclaimed $50,000 top prizes and 14 $10,000 prizes, in addition to thousands of other prizes ranging from $5 to $1,000, according to Maryland Lottery officials.
