ROSEDALE, MD—One lucky individual bought a $58,476 winning FAST PLAY ticket in the new $5 Payday progressive game on Sunday, June 21, Maryland Lottery officials said on Monday.
The ticket was purchased at the Royal Farms store located at 8803 Philadelphia Road (21237). This is the first progressive top prize-winning ticket sold for the Payday game, which went on sale June 15. The game has 19 progressive top prizes remaining.
The Payday progressive top prize grows with the purchase of each Payday ticket until the progressive top prize is hit, then it resets to the minimum progressive top prize amount of $40,000.
Officials recommend the winner sign the back of the ticket and keep it in a safe place until claiming the prize. Winners typically get 182 days to claim prizes. However, the Maryland Lottery has temporarily extended claiming deadlines due to Maryland’s COVID-19 state of emergency.
The Lottery Claims Center is accepting appointments for those wishing to claim prizes in person or winners can claim prizes by mail. Prize claim appointments can be made here.
