POULSBO — Someone in Poulsbo is $250,000 richer. A Poulsbo resident drew winning Mega Millions lottery numbers March 30, but is choosing to remain anonymous.
There were eight $250,000 prizes and 21 $10,000 prizes from the Mega Millions lottery the last week of March in Washington state, according to the state lottery.
Nearly 150,000 Mega Millions tickets were sold in Kitsap County that week. Of the 21 $10,000 winning Mega Millions tickets sold, three were sold in Kitsap County — one in Bremerton, one in Kingston and one in Silverdale.
The winning $250,000 tickets in Washington were sold in Ferndale, Poulsbo, Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Vancouver. Two of the Mega Millions $250,000 prizes have already been claimed.
Retailers who sold the winning tickets are also winners. All of the stores that sold the $250,000 prizes will each receive a retail selling bonus of $2,500.
