Woman wins $100,000 thanks to girlfriend’s ‘favorite number’

June 14 (UPI) — A Missouri woman said a suggestion from a friend who spotted one of her lucky numbers led her to win a $ 100,000 lottery jackpot.

Katelyn Poplin of Kansas City told Missouri Lottery officials she usually only plays $ 1 or $ 2 scratch-off tickets, but she decided to splurge on a $ 5 Triple Bonus Crossword ticket when a friend spotted a lucky number.

“It was one of my girlfriend’s favorite numbers on the ticket, so I thought, ‘Okay. Why not?'” she said.

Poplin said she and her girlfriend did some shopping before returning to her vehicle and scratching off the $ 100,000 top prize.

“I made her look at it to make sure I wasn’t crazy and that I’d done everything right,” Poplin said. “She said, ‘Yeah — this is a winner!'”

Poplin said the winnings come at a fortuitous time — her car was damaged in a collision just one week before she bought the ticket.

“I just thought it was a miracle,” she said. “I’m still in disbelief.”
