Lost (a Lottery Ticket) and Found (Worth $200,000)


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.

Dominguez said that before she spends any of the cash prize on herself, she will make a 10 percent donation to her church.
Then the winner plans to pay off her home loan and splurge on a big Christmas for her children and grandchildren.
