She was getting around to it!
GameLucky for Life
Ms. Robinson-Gibbs won the multi-state game's 2nd tier prize after matching the first five numbers (9-18-24-26-29) drawn for the Thursday, June 4, 2020 game. She didn't claim until September. When asked about the delay she said, "I buy my lottery tickets and then sometimes I switch purses. I checked my other purse and realized I had some older tickets. I knew I'd get around to it." And, we're glad she did as winning tickets for this game are valid for 180 days. Ms. Robinson-Gibbs thought she had one year to claim. She's the fifth DC Lottery player to claim a $25,000 A Year for Life prize since the game's launch in 2015. The 2ndprize is $25,000 A Year for Life. The "for life" prizes in the game are payable for the length of the winner's natural life, with payments guaranteed for a minimum of 20 years. Ms. Robinson-Gibbs chose the cash option, a one-time payment of $390,000. This winning ticket was purchased at Gandel's Liquors, 211 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.
