Wins $100,000 Playing Fast Cash

Steven Riddle only plays Lottery games when the spirit strikes him. Well, a visit by that spirit last week coincided with a coffee stop and together they produced a $100,000 top-prize scratch-off win.

“My dad stopped for coffee and I went in the store with him,” Steven told officials. His father, a frequent player, pointed out a brand new instant game, Fast Cash. “I just decided to try it – I can’t tell you why.” As the 27-year-old scratched his ticket in the store, he quickly realized that something special was happening as more and more of the winning symbols were showing up. “To say that I couldn’t believe my eyes is an understatement. My knees buckled, I felt like I was about to pass out.” Steven’s father, upon learning the news, made sure everyone in the store (maybe in the entire neighborhood) knew what was happening. “There was a bit of yelling.”

Steven, a movie theater employee, plans to get a new car for Christmas and invest the remainder of his winnings. He’ll also be paying for his dad’s coffee for a while. Fast Cash luck found Steven at the 7-11 convenience store at 785 Rockville Pike in Rockville. The lucky game, which arrived in stores earlier this month, still has four $100,000 prizes available.

    Limmy: Thanks for writing in. We get this comment a lot. People living in Baltimore believe all the winners are elsewhere and vice versa. Truth is the geographic locations of our winners are all random. There is no way to predict where the winners will be. However, research tells us that more winners come from areas of the State in which more people are playing. Please take a look at our winners stories. There you’ll see that we have winners from all over the State.
