NBC 26 — Winners of Wisconsin Lottery games are everywhere, and this past weekend, big wins took place in Green Bay and Fond du Lac.

The first-ever 100% Fast Play Progressive Jackpot was won by a player on Friday, May 12. The ticket was bought from Howard Central BP with a jackpot of $222,516.

Howard Central BP owner, Sam Goel, said, "The winner is a regular customer. This was his first time playing Fast Play. Just awesome!"

Fast Play games debuted in Wisconsin on April 23, which consist of a group of six lotto games that combine instant wins with a growing progressive jackpot.
