No cloudy skies for Shoreline lottery winner

A woman from Shoreline is dreaming of traveling with her son after a $500,000 “Ultimate Riches” Scratch win. She purchased her winning ticket from Fred Meyer in Shoreline (18325 Aurora Ave N).

The winner told lottery officials that she has faced a great deal of adversity in her personal life, including losing her husband in 2010. A bright spot after that tragedy was winning $50,000 playing lottery in 2015. The woman was still having trouble wrapping her head around the reality of winning two big prizes just years apart.

“Winning once was lucky. Twice is surreal. I want to be generous with friends and family. I’m planning to send my mom and my sister on a big trip to New York, and I want to take my son to see baseball games in different stadiums across the country.”
She said, most importantly, “I want to buy a new house. It will be nice to have a fresh start.”
