Winner bought lucky ticket Tuesday afternoon
Congratulations to the lucky Lottery player who bought a FAST PLAY World Championship Poker ticket on Tuesday, Feb. 15, and won its $129,149 progressive jackpot.
The winner found Lottery luck at Royal Farms #194 located at 803 Pulaski Highway in Havre de Grace. This is the second progressive jackpot won in the $5 game. The World Championship Poker progressive jackpot starts at $40,000 and grows with the sale of each ticket until a jackpot-winning ticket is sold.
This FAST PLAY game started in September 2021 and still has 13 progressive top prizes remaining along with seven $5,000 prizes and others ranging from $5 to $1,000. The Royal Farms store can also celebrate. For selling a jackpot-winning FAST PLAY ticket of $100,000 or more, the Harford County business receives a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
Lottery officials encourage the winner to sign the back of the ticket immediately and put it in a safe location. Winners get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes.

Players must redeem prizes larger than $25,000 by mail or at Lottery headquarters in the Montgomery Park Business Center, 1800 Washington Blvd., Suite 330 in Baltimore.
