Wins $77,698 playing the Home Run Riches progressive jackpot game
A Dorchester County man is certainly celebrating after winning the $77,698 progressive jackpot on a FAST PLAY Home Run Riches game. The 35-year-old lucky winner claimed his huge prize last week.
This was the second jackpot-winning ticket sold in the Home Run Riches game, which went on sale March 8 and has a progressive jackpot that starts at $40,000. Prizes range from $5 to $5,000 with a jackpot that increases with each ticket sold until a player buys the jackpot-winning ticket. The jackpot climbed to $77,698 until April 30, when the Cambridge player captured the prize. There are 18 more progressive jackpots awaiting discovery.
The lucky Dorchester County retailer that sold the jackpot-winning ticket is a winner, too. For its role, Shop Stop located at 300 Broad Street in Hurlock earns a bonus of $776.98. The bonus is equal to 1% of the prize.
In addition to winning cash prizes on the game, players can also enter winning and non-winning Home Run Riches tickets into My Lottery Rewards for the chance to be chosen as “Contestant of the Game.” Each winner gets $500 for being selected and an additional $500 for each Orioles home run hit during their game.
