A woman from Accokeek in Prince George’s County scratched the itch to play with a $10,000 winning $1,000,000 Blowout instant ticket. The 61-year-old player bought her lucky scratch-off at Marlow Winghouse & Sports Grille, 4147 Branch Avenue in Temple Hills.

The store, at 14 Aquahart Road, also gets lucky, picking up a $100 bonus — equal to 1 percent of the prize — for selling a winning Keno ticket with a prize of $10,000 or more.

A 51-year-old woman from Baltimore claimed the first top prize of $10,000 on the $2 Polar Bear Bucks game. The player bought the scratch-off at 7-Eleven #22094 at 8507 Loch Raven Boulevard in Towson. Five of the original six top $10,000 prizes are unclaimed in the game.
