Washington woman wins on five lottery tickets after playing numbers inspired by mother

A lucky Washington resident recently hit the lottery after choosing numbers inspired by her and her mother’s birthdays.

The woman, who lives in Everett and was identified by Washington’s Lottery as K.L., “always picks numbers that have a personal meaning.”

K.L. was looking at old photos of her mother before she purchased the Match 4 tickets earlier this month, where players pick four numbers between 1 and 24.

“Earlier this month K.L. was reminiscing on fond memories of her mother while looking through old photos, so when she purchased her weekly Match 4 tickets, she combined her and her mother’s birthdays as her numbers of choice,” the release said.

She won her prize on another important day for her mother, but was unaware until the next day.
