BALTIMORE, MD – A Baltimore man won $50,000 after purchasing a $30 Gold Rush lottery ticket at Royal Farms on Eastern Avenue in Baltimore this week.

José Armando Vicioso Valdez said he was excited after realizing he had won the second-tier prize in the $2,000,000 game.

“The father of two shared the great news with his wife, who actually did not believe he won until they arrived at Lottery headquarters to claim the prize,” the Baltimore Lottery said today. “The lucky couple were extremely happy about their win. When asked about their plans for the windfall, they said that they are going to pay bills and buy a new car.”

The $2,000,000 Gold Rush game went on sale in February 2022 and still has one $2 million top prize remaining. There are also two more $50,000 prizes and more than 406,000 other prizes ranging from $30 to $5,000.
