VIETNAM WAR VETERAN WINS $550,000 PLAYING WASHINGTON'S LOTTERY
December 26, 2015
A Vietnam War Veteran from Nine Mile Falls received very happy news when he discovered he’d won $550,000 playing Washington’s Lottery! The man played Hit 5 with his own numbers at the Cenex Zip Trip (4807 W 9 Mile Rd, Spokane, WA 99208), and was shocked when he discovered they were winners from the Dec. 9 drawing.

“I check the numbers every morning. When I saw them and double checked they were right, I called my wife and said, ‘Hey, guess what! You’re getting that new kitchen you wanted!’” he said.

The winner and his wife have been doing small renovations around their home and plan to use the money to finish that. He’d also like to upgrade his wife’s car.

A milestone birthday is coming up for the winner, so he looks forward to celebrating with his family and loved ones.

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide. To learn more about Washington’s Lottery, its beneficiaries and to review all up-to-date winning numbers, please visit www.walottery.com.
