Lottery win makes Tacoma couple’s 30th anniversary more memorable

Wife purchased winning ticket at Fred Meyer in Federal Way.

A Tacoma resident is celebrating a $190,000 win after playing Hit 5. She purchased the winning ticket at Fred Meyer in Federal Way, at 33702 21st Ave. SW.

The winner has won smaller amounts before, which have made her superstitious.

“I play at one particular store at one particular machine,” she stated in a press release from the Washington Lottery. She also had some advice for those looking to win like her. “I have the app on my phone which is really helpful. Any time I’m going to buy scratch tickets I use the app.”

As for what she plans to do with her winnings, the winner said she is excited to celebrate her 30th wedding anniversary with her husband.

“We were already planning on going out of town, but this will make it all the more pleasant.”

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, which provides grants to help college students statewide achieve their higher education dreams, and supports early childhood education learning programs.
