WASHINGTON STATE LOTTERY: POLISH IMMIGRANT BECOMES MILLIONAIRE

 OLYMPIA, Wash., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Jan Wolski, a 38-year-old man from Poland, now living in Seattle, is the $5-million Lotto jackpot winner for the March 20 drawing, the Washington State Lottery said today. His first check is $180,000 after the 28-percent federal tax withholding. He claimed his prize at the Lottery's Seattle regional office on March 22.
 Wolski has only been in this country for five and a half years, but he come through very clearly when he said, "I'm really lucky! I feel great!"
 Wolski purchased one quick pick ticket at Food Giant No. 6, 7355 Delridge Way S.W., Seattle, on the day of the drawing. He normally buys more than one ticket and chooses his own numbers, but this time he was in a hurry. He watched the drawing broadcast later that evening and thought that some of the Lotto numbers matched those on his ticket. He went to a 7-Eleven Store to double check and found that he was holding the winning ticket.
 Wolski was so excited that he had to call the only family he has in the United States, his brother and sister-in-law in Chicago. His mother and two brothers still live in Poland.
 Wolski said that he's going to either buy or build a house, close his failing business and probably do lots of traveling not that he's won the jackpot.
