PHILADELPHIA, PA – You can pin it on the luck of the Irish, but on St. Patrick’s Day, one Philadelphia resident found a pot of gold. A winning lottery ticket worth $501,352 was sold in the Magni-Find Monday game offered by the Pennsylvania Lottery Commission.

The ticket was sold at the Sunoco station on Walnut Lane in Philadelphia on Friday.

According to the Pennsylvania Lottery, Magni-Find Money is a $5 Fast Play game that offers progressive prizes starting at $50,000. Fast Play games are print-on-demand tickets sold at lottery sales terminals or self-service touch-screen vending terminals.

They are similar to scratch-off tickets, but without the need to scratch off the items.

To see if they’ve won a prize, players can review the ticket, or scan it at a Lottery retailer or with the ticket checker feature on the Lottery’s Official App. The holder of a top-prize winning Fast Play ticket should immediately sign the back of the ticket and call the Lottery at 1-800-692-7481.
