Washington Lottery Player Plans Save his Winnings

A Washington man who won $220,000 in the Washington Lottery Hit 5 draw claimed his prize on February 12, and said he plans to save his winnings for a rainy day.

The man wishes to remain anonymous, but he told lottery officials he has been playing the lottery for over 30 years and usually buys tickets for the Washington Lotto, Hit 5, Powerball, and Mega Millions drawings. He also admitted it was the first time he had ever won more than $10.

When asked what he considered to the best thing about a big win he said, "There's comfort in knowing that there's a cushion."
