Walla Walla Winner's Lucky Streak Holds Good

Ryan Waggoner of Walla Walla, in Washington, had a number of small wins playing the Washington Lottery's instant-win games so he kept on playing and his winning streak culminated in a $50,000 prize.

Waggoner's largest win to date came courtesy of a Washington Lottery "Spy Some Cash" scratch-off ticket.

"I've won some smaller amounts here and there, and even won $500 last month," Waggoner told lottery officials, "so I figured I would keep playing."

Although a $50,000 prize is enough to put a smile on his face, Waggoner may be smiling brighter still in the future because the lucky winner is planning to invest part of the money in some dental work.
