Winning Fast Play ticket sold in Bedford County
There was another big PA Lottery winner this week in Bedford County. The lucky player hit the progressive Top Prize of more than $184,000 on the Fast Play game Magni-Find Money. Coen Markets on Lincoln Highway in Bedford will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket. The Top Prize in this game keeps getting bigger until someone hits it. The prize has reset to $50,000.
PA Lottery Fast Play games work similarly to Scratch-Offs, with two key differences. Firstly, there’s no scratching involved! You simply check your numbers and see if they match up with the Winning Numbers that are both printed on the ticket. The second difference is that Fast Play games are printed right when you purchase them like draw games are — but you don’t have to wait for a drawing. You can buy Fast Play tickets at self service touch-screen terminals or at a lottery retailer’s counter.
Players should check every ticket using a ticket checker at a retailer or by using the PA Lottery app.
