Players Score Big Weekend Wins: $124,630 FAST PLAY, $50,000 Powerball prizes

Bought lucky tickets in Pasadena, Parkville

Two players crossed paths with Lottery luck last weekend, with one winning the 20th progressive jackpot in the FAST PLAY Lucky Numbers game on Friday afternoon and another winning a third-tier Powerball prize in the Saturday night drawing.

The FAST PLAY Lucky Numbers ticket worth $124,630 was sold at Grand Ritchie Liquors located at 8149 Ritchie Highway in Pasadena (Anne Arundel County). The $10 game has a progressive jackpot that starts at $100,000 and increases with each ticket sold until a progressive jackpot-winning ticket is sold. For its role in the lucky sale, Grand Ritchie Liquors earns a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.

Another lucky player bought a $50,000-winning Powerball ticket in the Saturday, April 2 drawing from Maria’s Inn located at 1812 Taylor Avenue in Parkville (Baltimore County). The winning Powerball numbers to match were 6, 28, 47, 58 and 59; the Powerball was 18. No one hit the jackpot, which rolled to an estimated annuity value of $231 million for the Monday, April 4 drawing. The estimated cash option is $147.5 million.

Lottery officials encourage the winners to sign the back of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. Winners get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim prizes.
