Thomas Haly of Vancouver recently became $50,000 richer playing one of Washington's Lottery newest Scratch games, Liberty Bills. "I was dumbfounded at first. It's all kind of surreal," he told Lottery officials when he claimed his prize just hours after realizing he was a winner on July 8.
A Vancouver man gave himself an unbelievable Father's Day gift when he purchased a Washington's Lottery Mega Multiplier Scratch ticket at Quick Shop Minit Mart at 12604 NW 36th Ave. in Vancouver that day and subsequently became $1 million richer. He waited a few weeks to cash in his prize at the Vancouver Lottery office so he could consider what to do with his winnings. When he claimed the prize on June 23, he said, "I was in disbelief, but now I plan to make good use of this money."
