Bryans Road Mason has a $1 million smile

News Release, Maryland Lottery

Claims $1 million prize on Gold Rush X100 game

The newest $20 game at Maryland Lottery retailers, the Gold Rush X100 scratch-off, caught the attention of one very lucky Bryans Road man recently. He’s partial to $20 and $30 instant tickets, said the loyal player, because of the bigger payouts they provide. The Charles County resident couldn’t ask for a larger payout than his big win in this game — a $1 million top prize!

Striking gold was his goal when the player bought the instant ticket at Bryans Road Shell. The 21-year-old stops there frequently to buy gas and usually adds a Lottery scratch-off to his purchase. The day he collided with Lottery luck, the scratch-off fan scanned the Gold Rush X100 game while still in the store. He won the first of seven $1 million top prizes in this game.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said the lucky winner. He ran outside to tell the person he was with and they both jumped up and down in celebration. The new millionaire has shared his great news with family and friends, who share his excitement.

The happy Bryans Road resident has worked as a mason for the past year. When asked about plans for his winnings, the happy player said he plans to invest the prize and buy houses for family members.

Bryans Road Shell located at 6985 Indian Head Highway also shares in the fun. The Charles County retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning scratch-off.

The Gold Rush X100 game, which is one of five in the Gold Rush family of scratch-off games, is packed with prizes, including 12 $50,000 and 128 $10,000 unclaimed prizes. Other games in this fun family are the $1 Gold Rush X5, $2 Gold Rush X10, $5 Gold Rush X20 and $10 Gold Rush X50 scratch-offs.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
