RICHLAND, WA. - A Richland woman is now $50,000 richer after playing Washington's Lottery Gem 7's Scratch.

Laurie Kozlik claimed her prize on July 15 at the Yakima Regional Office. The first person she was was her husband, who was on a fishing trip at the time.

Kozlik bought the ticket at Albertson's along Gage Boulevard in Richland. She and her husband plan to use the money to remodel their kitchen and visit family.

"It's so overwhelming. I just need to get it to the bank," she said.

Kozlik has won smaller prizes in the past but this is her biggest win yet. This is the second big winner from Richland in just a few months. Audrey Harwick, also of Richland, won $50,000 playing Washington's Lottery Scratch in June.
