Baltimore Woman Celebrates Timely FAST PLAY Win

Describes $100,000 Big Win prize as “life-changing”

“This brings us such relief,” a Baltimore woman told Lottery officials on Monday while claiming her prize. With tears in her eyes, a daily Pick-games player explained how a $10 FAST PLAY ticket, a game she rarely tries, and the $100,000 it delivered will make a big difference for their family.

The winner has been a longtime Pick 3 and Pick 4 player, she tells us. “I have a set of numbers I play most days, but every once in a while I like to try something different.  Such was the case last week when grocery shopping.

“I was all ready to buy a Pick 4 ticket, but something I’d read that morning made me change my mind.” The lucky lady was adamant that she does not believe in horoscope predictions, but she does occasionally glance at them.  “It was something about inserting something new into your routine, so it seemed like a good chance to do exactly that.”

Choosing Big Win as the departure from her usual Lottery purchase, she immediately noticed a matching pair of numbers on the ticket.

“Everything got very quiet all of a sudden,” she said. “The store was pretty busy, but nothing registered with me but that match and the $100,000 underneath.” Utterly shocked, she finished her shopping and rushed home to share the news with her husband.

The couple says that the family has experienced several health setbacks in recent years that have caused significant financial stress – medical bills causing them to fall behind on other bills. This $100,000 top-prize win will allow them to put much of that behind them. “It’ll be nice to go to sleep without these worries keeping us up.”

Her now-favorite retailer Harvest Fare will be smiling about this FAST PLAY win, too.  They will receive a $1,000 bonus for selling the top-prize winning Big Win ticket. The lucky grocery store can be found at 2905 Hamilton Avenue in Baltimore. Big Win debuted early last month with twenty-four $100,000 top prizes. This winner is the first to claim one. Twenty of the game’s $50,000 second-tier prizes also remain available.
