The new Fast Play games produced their eighth jackpot in a month on Saturday when a $2 ticket purchased at an Orange County convenience store won $25,049.
The $2 Lucky Clover ticket was sold at the Food Mart on Guess Road in Hillsborough.
A $2 ticket wins 20 percent of the jackpot. At the time of the win Saturday morning, the Fast Play jackpot had climbed to $125,245. The win dropped the jackpot amount by 20 percent and it began climbing again at $100,196.
The winner has 180 days to claim the prize at any lottery office.
In just the first month, North Carolinians trying out the new Fast Play games have won eight jackpots, ranging from $14,200 to $357,731.
The jackpot is one of the exciting features of the new Fast Play game. The rolling, progressive jackpot increases with every ticket sold until it is won. The odds of winning a Fast Play jackpot are 1 in 240,000.
Printed on each ticket is the amount of the jackpot when the ticket is sold and how much of that jackpot the ticket could win. Players can also win instant cash prizes on their Fast Play tickets.
Here’s how the Fast Play jackpot works:
- A $2 Fast Play ticket wins 20 percent of the jackpot.
- A $5 Fast Play ticket wins half of the jackpot.
- A $10 Fast Play ticket wins all of the jackpot.
Looking forward to meeting Saturday’s winner and seeing when the next Fast Play jackpot is hit. Good luck.
