Federal Way man wins $1 million Powerball prize

Winning ticket purchased at local Dash Point ARCO gas station.

A Federal Way man is still in disbelief after winning $1 million playing Washington’s Lottery Powerball.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased the winning ticket at the Dash Point ARCO at 1600 SW 312th St. in Federal Way for the drawing on Aug. 15.

Powerball players must match all five of the winning numbers drawn to win a $1 million prize.

The winner enjoys playing a variety of Lottery games, and this is his first big win.

The retired local shared the good news with his wife first, and said they both had a hard time sleeping after that. The man told Lottery officials he hadn’t made any solid plans to celebrate yet, but after a good night’s sleep, he and his wife plan to do something special together.

Washington’s Lottery offers consumers several types of games: Mega Millions, Powerball, Lotto, Hit 5, Match 4, Daily Game, Daily Keno and Scratch. Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide.
