A $170,566 winning FAST PLAY lottery ticket was sold on June 22nd at the Liberty Gas Station (26241 Ridge Rd) in Damascus. Additional details below courtesy of MD Lottery: “A pair of FAST PLAY purchases turned June 22 into a memorable evening for lucky Lottery players in Riverdale Park and Damascus. Someone bought a $5 World Championship Poker ticket that won a progressive jackpot worth $107,801 at Kenilworth Liquors in Riverdale Park. Then Lottery luck struck again in the $10 Casino Royale Slots game, when a jackpot-winning ticket worth $170,566 was sold at Damascus Liberty in Damascus.
World Championship Poker launched in September 2021 with 15 progressive jackpot prizes, and the ticket sold in Riverdale Park was the seventh of those to be won. The progressive jackpot starts at $40,000 and increases with the sale of each ticket until a jackpot-winning ticket is sold. The game also carries thousands of additional prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000.
Casino Royale Slots launched in January 2023 with 30 progressive jackpot prizes, and the ticket sold in Damascus marked the second of those. In addition to the 28 remaining jackpot prizes, the game also has thousands of other prizes ranging from $10 to $1,000. The Casino Slots Royale progressive jackpot starts at $100,000.
The two retailers share in the fun as well. For selling the tickets, Kenilworth Liquors, located at 5401 Kenilworth Avenue in Riverdale Park, and Damascus Liberty, located at 26421 Ridge Road in Damascus, will each receive a $1,000 bonus from the Lottery. Lottery officials encourage the winners to sign the backs of the ticket immediately and put them in safe locations. Winners of FAST PLAY games have 182 days from the date of their purchase to claim their prizes.
