Player wins 10th progressive prize in $10 game
Happy days are here for a FAST PLAY fan! A Maryland Lottery player bought a $158,577 top-prize winning ticket in the progressive Lucky Numbers game on Thursday, June 18 at Royal Farms #180 in Owings Mills.
The lucky player bought the ticket in late morning at the Baltimore County store, which is located at 11510 Reisterstown Road. The $10 Lucky Numbers game still has 30 progressive top prizes remaining and a jackpot that is already climbing after being reset to $100,000.
The lucky retailer also has reason to celebrate. The convenience store will earn a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top-prize winning ticket of $100,000 or more.
Lottery officials recommend the winner sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize. Winners typically get 182 days to claim prizes. However, the Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency. The Lottery Customer Resource Center is temporarily closed but winners can claim prizes by mail or wait until the Lottery’s office reopens. Details on how to claim by mail are available here.
Lucky Numbers is one of five FAST PLAY games that went on sale statewide on Feb. 10. Four additional games arrived in stores on June 15. FAST PLAY features instant-win games printed by Lottery terminals and self-service vending machines that play like scratch-offs.
The Lucky Numbers progressive top prize increases with the purchase of each ticket until a top-prize winning ticket is sold. The top prize amount is updated every 15 minutes on in-store video displays and on mdlottery.com, and an up-to-the-minute figure is displayed on Lucky Numbers tickets.
