Maryland Lottery’s FAST PLAY games offer new ways to win instantly
Great news, everyone! FAST PLAY games are now available from the Maryland Lottery.
FAST PLAY games are instant tickets that you don’t have to scratch. They are printed by Lottery terminals and self-service vending machines, just like draw game tickets. But you find out instantly if you’ve won – no scratching and no drawings.
Watch how to play FAST PLAY:
Five different FAST PLAY games are now on sale at all Lottery retailers. Just like scratch-offs, the games come in a variety of prices and play styles. Each has its own play instructions and prize structure. The Lottery website is updated each day with the number of remaining prizes on all FAST PLAY games, just as it is for scratch-offs.
The new FAST PLAY games are:
$1 Piggy Bank Bucks: 20 top prizes of $1,000
$2 Cherry Twist: 10 top prizes of $10,000
$3 Treasure Chase: 10 top prizes of $30,000 top prize
$5 Hit $250: 8,000 top prizes of $250
$10 Lucky Numbers: 40 progressive top prizes starting at $100,000
Progressive top prize games like Lucky Numbers have a top prize that starts at a base amount and increases with the sale of each ticket until a top-prize-winning ticket is sold. The progressive top prize amount then resets to the base amount and starts increasing again. The Lottery’s website and in-store video monitors will display estimated progressive top prize amounts updated every 15 minutes. When you buy a progressive top prize game, an up-to-the-minute progressive top prize amount will be displayed on your ticket.
Our FAST PLAY launch marks the first time the Lottery has introduced a new game category since 2016, when we started offering Cash4Life. FAST PLAY is a proven success in 18 states. Each state operates FAST PLAY independently, which means it is not a multi-state lottery product like Powerball or Mega Millions.
