A Harford County man claimed a sizzling hot FAST PLAY win last week after trying his luck with a Chili Pepper Payout game. He won the $68,940 progressive jackpot on the $5 game.

The 28-year-old bought his ticket at Wawa #8512 located at 302 Pulaski Highway in Elkton. The Edgewood resident won the first progressive jackpot in the game, which has 18 more progressive jackpots remaining. In this game, the progressive jackpot starts at $40,000 and increases with each sale of the ticket until a winning ticket is sold.
