Mecosta County Woman Wins $262,477 Fast Cash Progressive Jackpot

A Mecosta County woman nearly peed her pants after winning a $262,477 progressive jackpot playing the Michigan Lottery’s 20X The Cash Fast Cash game.

The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought her winning ticket at Wee Bee’s Party Store, located at 139 South Cass Street in Morley. Morley is about 40 miles north of Grand Rapids.

“I was in Wee Bee’s and won $5 on a 20X The Cash Fast Cash ticket,” said the 68-year-old player. “I used that $5 to buy another ticket and won $10. Then I bought two more tickets and hit the jackpot!

“I scanned the winning ticket and it kept saying I needed to see the retailer. I looked at it a little closer and when I saw I had matched the number 26 to win the jackpot I almost peed my pants!”

The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters Tuesday to claim the big prize. With her winnings she plans to take a trip to Hawaii, share with some family members, and then invest the remainder.

“Winning is a good feeling, but it’s also nerve-wracking. I’ve never had to figure out what to do with my money because I’ve never had this much. It’s a great problem to have,” the player said.

Fast Cash games are a series of instant-win games that print from terminals at Lottery retailers. Fast Cash tickets range in price from $1 per play up to $10 per play, and feature popular game themes, including Cashword and Wild Time.

Fast Cash games also offer a progressive jackpot that can be won instantly. Every Fast Cash ticket gives players a chance to win all or part of the progressive jackpot.

All of the Fast Cash games feed into one jackpot, which grows with every ticket purchased. The current jackpot amount prints on each ticket, so players always will know the amount of the jackpot up for grabs. The jackpot may be won at any time. As soon as the jackpot is hit, a new one starts again.

Available Fast Cash games are:

  • Bowling Bucks – Each $1 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $1 up to $100 and 10 percent of the Fast Cash progressive jackpot.
  • Cashword Progressive – Each $2 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $2 up to $500 and 20 percent of the Fast Cash progressive jackpot.
  • Wild Time Progressive – Each $2 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $2 up to $500 and 20 percent of the Fast Cash progressive jackpot.
  • 20X The Cash – Each $5 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $5 up to $2,500 and 50 percent of the Fast Cash progressive jackpot.
  • Jackpot Slots – Each $10 ticket offers players a chance to win prizes ranging from $10 up to $5,000 and 100 percent of the Fast Cash progressive jackpot.

Fast Cash prizes never sell out and there is no waiting for a drawing as all games are played immediately.

Fast Cash games may be purchased at 11,000 retailers across the state.
