Washington man wins lottery, then leaves ticket at gas station
A Pasco, Washington, man is planning for his new eating place after profitable $180,000 within the Hit five lottery recreation.
But he got here on the subject of shedding the profitable ticket.
He purchased his Hit five ticket at the Tesoro at 1212 N. Fourth Ave. in Pasco, Washington, for the drawing on Nov. 22.
A couple of days later he returned to the gas station to test his ticket.
When he heard he had a profitable ticket — splitting a $360,000 prize with the patron of a 2d profitable ticket — his first concept was once to proportion the excellent news together with his spouse.
But when he reached her, he didn’t have a ticket to turn her. He had left it at the gas station.
“It felt like it took them forever to find it,” he mentioned. “But when they finally did, it was the best moment. I signed it immediately and went straight home.”
He and his spouse have lately bought a cafe within the Tri-Cities, however have now not been ready to find the money for an indication for it but.
Neither the title of the winner nor his eating place have been launched by means of the Washington Lottery.
The winner plans to repay debt from buying the eating place and then purchase a brand new signal to switch the plastic banner that now hangs over the eating place.
