Sales push jackpot in $20 Diamond Mine game to new heights
Jackpot frenzy is under way in Maryland today as players chase a record progressive jackpot in the FAST PLAY Diamond Mine game that has climbed to more than $1 million.
Sales are sizzling this morning as the jackpot for this $20 ticket grows. Diamond Mine offers players 26 chances to win and a progressive jackpot that starts at $250,000 and grows with the sale of each ticket until a jackpot-winning ticket is sold.
Because the amount of the jackpot changes with each sale, players should check their tickets for the up-to-the-minute amount. The Lottery updates FAST PLAY progressive jackpots every 15 minutes on mdlottery.com, on the Lottery mobile app and on video monitors located at all Maryland Lottery retailers.
The last Diamond Mine progressive jackpot win was for $440,092 on a ticket sold at Sheetz #464 in Hagerstown. The jackpot has been climbing ever since, and has already eclipsed the last record — $922,144 — set on a ticket in the same game sold March 7 at Royal Farms #028 in Annapolis. The Lottery has 18 FAST PLAY games available in prices from $1 to $20. Seven of them are progressive jackpot games.
