Just wondering, had part of the Fast Play Jackpot been won since Sunday night ? Total jackpot was over 700,000, figured a 20% winner somewhere . Where was the winner ?NC Lottery
Hi Scott, a player in Fayetteville just won a top prize of $147,107 while playing Fast Play this morning. The winning $2 Jackpot 7s ticket was sold at Lucky Seven on Raeford Rd. $2 winning tickets take 20% of the total jackpot.
