Money to go toward new car, golf clubs and children’s college expenses
An Anne Arundel County woman said she was overcome with joy as she won a $139,194 progressive jackpot on a FAST PLAY World Championship Poker ticket. The prize is the largest of the five progressive jackpots won to date in the $5 game.
“I started to scream when I won. I am glad no one was around,” she said with a grin.
The Severn resident, who has two college-age children, said some of the money will go toward their college expenses. The lucky lady also plans to buy a new car and has started to play golf.
“I going to get some new golf clubs,” she said.
She bought the winning ticket at Georgetown Deli & Convenience located at 2829 Georgetown Road in Baltimore City. For its role in selling the ticket, the business earns a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery.
The 52-year-old player is the fifth progressive jackpot winner in the FAST PLAY World Championship Poker series. Ten progressive jackpots remain. In this game, the progressive jackpot starts at $40,000 and increases with the sale of each ticket until a player buys a progressive jackpot-winning ticket. There are six $5,000 prizes remaining along with more than 974,000 others ranging from $5 to $1,000.
