Six Washingtonians score big in Warehouse Dash® promotion from Washington’s Lottery

Winners and their guests traveled to Chicago and took home computers, TVs, kitchen appliances and more

Olympia, Wash. (June 20, 2024) – If you were ever let loose in a warehouse and told you had 90 seconds to get as many items as you wanted – for free – what would you grab first? Six Washingtonians recently found out when they and their guests dashed through a Chicago warehouse last month as part of the Warehouse Dash® promotion from Washington’s Lottery. In total, winners took home dream big-ticket items, including TVs, laptops, grills, air fryers, coffee makers, massagers, projectors, speakers, vacuums, drones and more.

In addition to participating in the 90-second Dash Event through the warehouse to place as much merchandise as they could into their shopping cart, each winner and their guest also won a three-day, two-night trip to Chicago, with their hotel and round-trip airfare paid for, as well as $500 in spending money.  

When the winners and their guests touched down in Chicago, they were greeted at a welcome reception dinner courtesy of Washington’s Lottery. The six promotion winners included Steve Caldwell from Vancouver, Allen Werth from Oakville, Phillip Duong from Renton, Lindsay Suarez from Moses Lake, Ethan Allen from Spokane and Michael Butcher from Puyallup.

Prior to the event, the winners and their guests were allowed to walk around the warehouse to see what items were available. One winner created a map on his sleeve so that he knew which items to go to first. Another winner said he wanted his daughter, who accompanied him, to “have fun and grab lots of stuff.”

After each dash, winners and their partners were smiling, embracing, and trying to catch their breath after an impressive feat. When asked how they felt afterwards, one guest said, “It was fun, like a kid in a candy store.” Several other participants described the event as “unbelievable fun,” “a great time,” and a “once in a lifetime experience.”

The Warehouse Dash promotion ended on March 23, 2024. A full list of special offers and events from Washington’s Lottery can be found here.
