Lucky Out-of-Town Resident Takes Home Hefty Lottery Win

Claims $100,000 top prize on FAST PLAY holiday-themed game

A Florida resident who recently visited Maryland is returning home carrying some extra baggage – but not the emotional kind! He’s taking home the equivalent of bags of cash after winning a $100,000 top prize on a Maryland Lottery FAST PLAY ticket.

While in town visiting his daughter, the 59-year-old visited Shoppers #2353 located at 806 Largo Center Drive in Prince George’s County. He purchased a $10 Holiday Money Match ticket and made the winning number match to capture the game’s first top prize.

The lucky St. Augustine resident told Lottery officials he has no plans yet for his newfound fortune. His Lottery retailer, Shoppers #2353 in Largo, is benefiting from its role in the lucky ticket sale, too. The grocery receives a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling a top prize-winning FAST PLAY ticket of $100,000 or more.

The Holiday Money Match game went on sale in November and has 29 unclaimed $100,000 top prizes remaining. Players can also try to win 71 $10,000 prizes and 146 $5,000 prizes.
