An anonymous Kennewick woman recently won $100,000 when playing the Hit 5 game from the Washington Lottery.
She just realized when she checked her ticket at a Washington Lottery retail location near her home in Kennewick. The ticket was purchased at Pardners, the Best Little Mini, in Winthrop. According to lottery officials the woman has chosen to remain anonymous. The woman says she plans on purchasing a new refrigerator and save for a new roof and heat pump.
The woman regularly plays the Mega Millions, Washington's Lottery Lotto, Hit 5, and Powerball games.
She is no stranger to winning contests either as she has won multiple sweepstakes that have garnered the rewards of a trip to Hawaii, savings bonds, a titanium bicycle, and a Chevy Silverado.
The Hit 5 lottery winnings start at $100,000 and continually grows until a person picks 5 winning numbers. The odds of winning the $100,000 prize are 1 in 576,000.
