Who bought that $3.2 million Lotto ticket in Seattle?

The Seattle customer whose lottery numbers were selected for a $3.2 million jackpot Monday night has yet to come forward, said a Washington Lottery spokeswoman.

Whoever bought that lucky ticket — numbers 16-18-21-26-40-41 — has 180 days to to claim the jackpot. Past winners have waited as long as the last day to claim their prize, according to the Lotto spokeswoman.

Last week, Lynnwood couple Sandra and Paul Erickson were thrilled to win a $340,000 lottery prize. They got their check  today and plan to buy a new car and big fireworks for Independence Day this year, according to a Washington Lottery release.

“My husband danced around the kitchen, and I got panicky because I couldn’t believe it was true,” Sandra Erickson said in a statement. “The first person we told about our big win was our son, and he was really excited.”

Sandra bought the ticket at a Lynnwood Fred Meyer on 196th Street, which will get a $3,400 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
