Woman forgets intended lotto numbers, wins $190,000 jackpot anyway

Forgetting your boarding pass? That’ll cost you!

Forgetting your lotto numbers? Priceless!

A woman in Washington said she won a $190,000 jackpot after she forgot her list of intended numbers at home, according to a press release from the Washington Lottery.

You see, the woman used a popular strategy; writing down special dates and anniversaries in her family. 

Problem is, when she got to the store, she realized she forgot the paper. 

But it wasn’t a problem at all. She used QuickPick and scored herself a nice payday. 

What’s she going to do with the $190,000?

She says she’s going to renovate her house and head to New York to see Jersey Boys on Broadway.
