About Fast Play: Fast Play games offer the chance to instantly win prizes without scratching the ticket or waiting for a drawing. Fast Play games print on-demand from a Lottery sales terminal or self-service touch-screen vending terminal. Review the ticket, scan it at a Lottery retailer or use the ticket checker on our official mobile app to determine if it is a winner. Some Fast Play games offer a progressive top prize that grows until it is won, then immediately resets to the minimum top prize and starts growing again. Retailers may not print Fast Play games in advance; tickets must be printed at the time of purchase. Chances of winning vary by game.
