A vacation to “the Aloha State” is in store for a man from Camano Island after a trip to the Stanwood ampm (26930 104th Drive NW, Stanwood, WA 98292) resulted in a $70,000 Scratch win.
“At first, I thought I won $70,” said the winner. “When I finally realized it was $70,000, I told my wife and went straight to the ampm I bought my ticket from and gave the cashier $100. She was new and having a hard time with the register, so I figured it would make her day better.”
The winner told Washington’s Lottery officials his 25th wedding anniversary is right around the corner and this win will allow him to take his wife on a destination date to Oahu. “My wife has never been to Hawaii, so I’m excited to take her,” said the man. “We’re going to go to a luau to watch the fire dancers perform.”
