A woman from Shoreline walked past the Washington’s Lottery vending machine in Fred Meyer, 18325 Aurora Ave N, and had a good feeling when she saw the pink, “$30,000,000 Blowout” Scratch game.

She decided to purchase the ticket and shortly after sitting down to scratch her numbers, she realized she had just won $500,000.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for this win,” the woman said.

The winner told Lottery officials she is excited to use her prize money to further her education.

She plans to return to school and get a degree in a subject matter that highlights her strengths. She said she then hopes to get a great job that she’ll enjoy for years to come.

“This came so unexpectedly,” the winner said. “I need to start researching degrees and career paths!”

In addition to going back to college, the winner said she’s going to celebrate with a meal at a nice restaurant and then head to the bank to invest some of the money.

She also plans to take a vacation to a warm destination like Hawaii.
