A woman from Redmond is celebrating after a random Hit 5 purchase at Fred Meyer (2041 148th Ave N.E., Bellevue) resulted in a $310,000 Hit 5 win.

“I was getting ready for work when I saw my ticket in the kitchen,” said the winner, who asked not to be identified for privacy purposes. “As I was going online to check my ticket, I thought, ‘What if I won and didn’t have to go into work today.’ Then I found out my ticket was a winner!”

The woman told a Washington’s Lottery representative she first plans to pay off some bills with the prize money, as she and her husband recently completed a kitchen and bathroom remodel. Then she plans to shop for a new car, potentially a Land Rover.

Proceeds from Washington’s Lottery benefit the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account, providing grants to college students statewide.
