Ravens fans get trip of a lifetime from Maryland Lottery scratch card
BALTIMORE, MD – Ten winners from the “Ravens Cash Fantasy” scratch card by the Maryland Lottery are to fly with the Balitmore Ravens team on their journey to play the Carolina Panthers on November 21st.
“I’m just jumping for joy,” one over-excited winner said.
“I thought it was a joke,” said another Ravens fan of the moment he found out he won. “I got a friend, and we play jokes like that. So, when I called back and they said I really won, I had to pinch myself.”
For the Ravens, making arrangements for 20 extra people for the weekend is a lot of work, but it’s worth it.
Baltimore Ravens spokesperson Kate Kasabula “We’re definitely trying to find out where to put the extra bodies on the plane and getting extra hotel rooms and tickets, but our staff makes it happen.”
Maryland Lottery officials said the game was their best selling lottery ticket last year, and they’re hoping for the same outcome in the coming year.
The Baltimore Ravens play a home match against the Atlanta Falcons this weekend.
