Muckleshoot Casino Resort in Washington Sells $1.3M Lotto Jackpot Ticket, Prize Unclaimed

The Muckleshoot Casino Resort in Auburn, Washington, recently sold a winning ticket for the $1.3 million Lotto jackpot. However, the big winner has yet to claim their prize.

Muckleshoot Casino Resort received a $13,000 retailer bonus for selling the winning Lotto jackpot ticket

Washington’s Lottery announced Friday that the casino sold the winning ticket on June 22. Since the ticket was bought at Muckleshoot, the casino received a $13,000 retailer selling bonus.

“When we learned that we had sold the winning ticket and were receiving a bonus, we were absolutely thrilled. We’re already planning on how we’re going to celebrate as a team,” said Robert Dearstine, Executive Director of Marketing at Muckleshoot Casino Resort.

“We’re even more excited for the lucky player who will be taking home this sizeable win. It’s such a special moment that can change someone’s life for the better.”

This marks the third time this month that Muckleshoot Casion Resort has paid out a large Lotto prize. The previous two were second-tier prizes of $1,000 that were paid out on June 3 and June 7.

Jackpot starts at $1,000,000 and grows until a player wins

Washington’s Lottery advises players to check their tickets after drawings as soon as possible.

Players with winning tickets are required to contact one of the regional offices of Washington’s Lottery within 180 days from the date of the drawing, in order to claim their prizes.

Lotto is a Washington state lottery game that costs $1 for two plays. Players pick two sets of six numbers between one and 49. A player wins the jackpot if they match all six numbers.

Of course, the jackpot starts at $1,000,000 and grows until someone hits it. The odds of winning are one in 6,990,000. The winning numbers for the June 22, 2024, drawing were 11-18-26-33-38-46.

In fact, the odds of matching five numbers are one in 27,100. The prize amount for matching five white balls is $1,000. For matching four white balls, the prize amount is just $30.

The odds of winning with four balls are only one in 516.
