Imagine heading to collect a prize as a minor lottery winner only to buy another ticket and discover that you’ve won more than you thought? Well, that’s exactly what Portland man Sam Hawley discovered when he went to cash in his ticket.
Mr Hawley was excited to arrive at the lottery office to tell his lottery winner story and collect his $1,750 prize when he discovered that he had arrived far too early and the office didn’t open for another hour. To kill the time, he went to the Wilsonville Fred Meyer store and, on a whim, bought another Keno 8-Spot ticket with the same numbers that he has used for years.
Mr Hawley was in the middle of claiming his $1,750 when he realized that the new Keno 8-Spot ticket had won him a whopping $118,000 jackpot. The jackpot of $93,759.60 was a rolling one, and he won that as well as a bonus of $25,000 for matching all eight numbers across the ticket. That one hour he arrived at the Wilsonville Payment Center that was just too early ended up changing his life, and that’s not something that everyone can claim from a Keno ticket.
