Owings Mills Woman Wins Lotto, Plans To Buy House

OWINGS MILLS, MD — A cleaner from Owings Mills won $100,000 playing a scratch-off this week, according to the Maryland Lottery. She claimed the top prize in the $100,000 Crossword game.

To play the scratch-off crossword game, it costs $10.

In the $100,000 Crossword game, people scratch off a set of 20 letters that are designated as their letters, and then they scratch off the corresponding letters in the puzzles on the card to try to spell out words.

The 25-year-old Baltimore County woman bought her ticket at the Pikesville Xpress Mart at 200 Reisterstown Road on Friday, Feb. 9, according to lottery officials.

She went home and scratched it off, noticing matching words continued to appear in her crossword puzzles.

“The win, which featured several four-letter words, may have inspired a few four-letter exclamations…” the Maryland Lottery reported.

The Owings Mills woman, who works part-time as a cleaner, told lottery officials she plans to purchase a house with her winnings, which she described as “mucho money.”

For selling a $100,000 winning ticket, the Pikesville Xpress Mart will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Maryland Lottery.

Since the end of November, when the $100,000 Crossword game began, only eight people have won the top prize. Five $100,000 tickets remain, lottery officials say.

To win $100,000, players must make at least 10 words with their letters. There are other types of smaller prizes that people can win for making from three to nine words, ranging from $10 to $10,000.
