BATAVIA, NY RESIDENT IS LATEST WINNER OF $10K AS PART OF TOPS MONOPOLY RIP IT AND WIN IT GAME!
Williamsville, N.Y. – Yesterday, Tops was excited to award $10,000 in Food and Fuel stimulus as part of its Tops Monopoly Rip it and Win It Game to MaryAnne D. of Batavia, NY. MaryAnne was lucky winner number fifteen of a potential 50!

No one is ever truly prepared to be told they’ve won $10,000. You may talk about it with friends or family and play the “what if” game, but until it happens to you, the feeling is truly indescribable. That was the feeling for MaryAnne. “I thought it wasn’t real. Like someone had added an extra zero at the end of the grand total,” she laughs. “It’s starting to sink in but I said I won’t really believe it until I have the gift cards in hand.”

Well that dream became a reality when Batavia Tops Store Manager, Kris Ponzi, presented her with her prize. “People were so excited at the store when I showed them the ticket. It was like a party was going on,” said MaryAnne. Ironically MaryAnne told Tops representatives that she wasn’t even planning on shopping that day and had even tossed the tickets to the bottom of her purse and wasn’t going to open them until later. Even more ironic? She had changed what lane she was standing in and she has never done that before. It was fate! “I immediately went to my daughters to show her the winning ticket and she was very excited for me.” Noting she doesn’t spend much on gas and groceries for herself she stated that she’ll probably share her winnings and give them away as gifts.

Tops kicked off its 12th season of Monopoly® Rip It & Win It Game on Sunday, March 7, 2021. This year you’ll not only have a chance to win one of 50 Grand Prizes of $10,000 like the lucky individual noted above, in Food & Fuel Stimulus, but millions of other prizes and great money saving offers!
