She lost her Powerball ticket.
And then she found it.
And won $200,000.
Here is the story: An Albuquerque woman who found a misplaced ticket while cleaning house claimed a $200,000 prize from the New Mexico Lottery.
On her quick-pick ticket for the game’s Nov. 19 drawing, Frances Dominguez matched the winning white ball numbers of 9, 16, 17, 28 and 30.
She missed landing the night’s $60 million jackpot by not matching the winning red 11.
Dominguez came across the ticket in a drawer where she empties her pockets before putting clothes in the laundry. She learned the ticket was worth $200,000 when she took it to lottery headquarters.
I started crying like crazy, she said. My legs felt like they didn’t want to hold me up.
