From Forgotten to Fortunate: Washington Woman Discovers $135K Lottery Win in Dusty Drawer

Friday, March 1, 2024

In an extraordinary turn of events, a Lynnwood, Washington, resident experienced the surprise of a lifetime upon discovering her months-old lottery ticket was actually worth $135,000. So, there's this woman from Washington, right? She nips into a Fred Meyer to grab some bits for dinner, probably thinking about what to rustle up, and she ends up buying a lottery ticket from a vending machine. Just a casual day out, nothing special.

Now, fast forward a few months, and it's almost like this ticket's become part of the furniture. Then, her husband, probably while tidying up or something, goes, "Oi, weren't you going to check that lottery ticket?" So, she finally scans the thing at a machine, and bam! It tells her to toddle off to the Lottery Regional Office.

Turns out, she's sitting on a cool $135,000. Just like that. And who is this lucky lady? M.B., a mum and a master electrician from Lynnwood. She's hit the jackpot, and now she's talking about living debt-free. It's like a fairy tale, but with better wiring.

Now, here's the kicker: you've got to check these tickets, folks. Depending on where you are, they could turn into pumpkin after anywhere from 90 days to a year. In Washington, it's 180 days. Don't let your ticket turn into a pumpkin.

And a bit of trivia for you – Hit 5, this game she won? It's been around since 2007, taking over from Quinto. A buck a play, pick five numbers between 1 and 42, and who knows? You might just end up like M.B. over here. Life's funny, innit?
