Someone in Florence had a very lucky day.
The Kentucky Lottery announced that a “Fast Play” ticket sold in Florence won the game’s progressive jackpot of $1,401,304.
It was reported as the biggest jackpot amount in the history of the game, which was introduced in 2019.
Fast Play tickets are printed from a lottery terminal like a Powerball or Pick 3 ticket, but instead of waiting for a drawing, players immediately know if they have won.
The game plays like a Scratch-off ticket, where players match numbers or symbols to win prizes.
Lottery officials did not identify the winner or the location where the winning ticket was told, and instead advised the winner to sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a secure location.
They have 180 days from the date of the purchase to claim their prize, which has to be done at the lottery’s headquarters in Louisville.
