Loren and Donna Hafer of Chewelah, Wash. received their $11 million check yesterday. The parents of six, grandparents of 10 and great-grandparents of five could hardly believe it when they found out they won an amount that tied for the largest
jackpot since the game was restructured in 2006!
“We started playing
when the jackpot got high,” explained Donna Hafer. “We had never won anything before in our lives!”
Loren is an 84-year-old retired Lynden Transport employee, and Donna is a 74-year-old retired casino employee. When asked what they plan to do with their money, Loren replied, “Find the best pickup truck in town!”
