Dec. 6 (UPI) -- An Oregon man who arrived at a lottery office too early to claim his $1,750 prize ended up winning an additional $118,000.
Sam Hawley, of Portland, told Oregon Lottery officials he arrived at the organization's Wilsonville Payment Center about 7:30 a.m. to claim a $1,759 Special Keno 8-Spot prize, but quickly discovered the office didn't open until 8:30 a.m.
Hawley traveled to the nearby Wilsonville Fred Meyer store and bought another Keno 8-Spot ticket using the same numbers.
"I have used the same numbers for years," Hawley said.
He said he was in the process of claiming his $1,750 prize when he discovered his new ticket had won him an $118,000 jackpot. He won the $93,759.60 rolling jackpot as well as a $25,000 bonus for matching all eight numbers.
