Congratulations to the lucky player who won the largest progressive jackpot to date in the FAST PLAY World Championship Poker game. The winning ticket worth $139,195 was sold Tuesday afternoon at Georgetown Deli & Convenience located at 2829 Georgetown Road in Baltimore City. Check your tickets!
This was the fifth progressive jackpot won in the $5 game and the largest the game has produced since making its debut in September 2021. World Championship Poker has a progressive jackpot that starts at $40,000 and grows with the sale of each ticket until a progressive jackpot-winning ticket is purchased. The game still has 10 progressive jackpots remaining. This game’s second-largest progressive jackpot of $129,149 was claimed Feb. 16 and sold at Royal Farms #194 in Havre de Grace.
The lucky Baltimore City retailer is also celebrating! For selling a winning FAST PLAY ticket with a top prize of $100,000 or more, Georgetown Deli & Convenience will receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
