Madison, WI -- Things have been moving fast for Howard Central BP on 2002 Velp Ave. in Green Bay. The Wisconsin Lottery retailer sold a winning $83,645 Fast Play Progressive Jackpot ticket to a customer today. The winning ticket, a Fast Play game called Platinum Payout, won 100% of the Progressive Jackpot.
It is the second time in 2023 Howard Central BP has sold a 100% Fast Play Progressive Jackpot winner. On May 12, the retailer sold a winning $222,516 Fast Play Progressive Jackpot ticket.
"We're excited about the win. We sell a lot of Fast Play tickets here. Everyone wants to come here and be the next big winner," said Howard Central BP Manager Matt Plautz.
Wisconsin Lottery retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive a two percent Retailer Performance Winning Ticket Incentive, up to $100,000.
Unlike other lotto games, the Fast Play Progressive Jackpot can be won as soon as a ticket is purchased. The amount of the Progressive Jackpot won depends on the ticket price purchased by the player – $1 tickets win 10% of the Progressive Jackpot, $2 tickets win 20%, $5 tickets win 50%, and $10 tickets win 100%.
The odds of winning the Fast Play Progressive Jackpot are 1 in 240,000. Printed on each Fast Play ticket is the amount of the estimated jackpot when the ticket is sold and how much of that estimated jackpot the ticket could win. Players can also win other instant cash prizes on their Fast Play tickets.
The Wisconsin Lottery Fast Play Progressive Jackpot is only winnable in Wisconsin and is not shared with other states.
