OLYMPIA, WA – With St. Patrick’s Day upon us, Washington’s Lottery is sharing its “Luckiest Stores” – retail locations that have sold the most Scratch tickets with prizes worth over $1,000 or more in the previous year. Washington’s Lottery has released a “Luckiest Stores” list for six regions around the state: Tri-Cities, Puget Sound, Olympic Peninsula, Eastern Washington, Southwest Washington, and Central Washington.

In the Tri-Cities, it was a three-way tie, with three retailers each selling five winning Scratch tickets with prizes over $1,000.

When winners from the Tri-Cities region were asked how they plan to spend the money, here is what they shared:

  • “I’m excited about this win because I began building a house for my family, but I haven’t been able to complete the long project. With his new prize money, I’ll be able to finish construction and finally move in.” – F. Tellez, Pasco

  • “I’ve never been to Hawaii but my husband and I planned to go eventually, so winning this money just gives us the opportunity to travel there sooner! This win gives us a chance to make more plans for the future and carry out current plans earlier. We’re very excited!” – C. Langlo, Kennewick
