Sandpoint lotto winner: "Cool, I won." |
Title (Max 100 Characters)
In what could be described as the understatement of the century, a Sandpoint man who won $1 million in the lottery last week told himself, "Cool, I won."
Brian Reed was coming home from a fishing trip on Lake Pend Oreille Saturday, when he made a fateful stop at the Travel American Plaza in Sagle.
"I asked for a $5 quick pick, but actually had an extra dollar so I got three," Reed said in a press release issued by the lottery Wednesday. The middle pick was the winner. How did the new millionaire react?
"I didn't get too excited, I just said 'Cool, I won'," Reed said.
Reed told the lottery he plans to invest his winnings in some business ventures and spend more time with his grandchildren.
The store will collect $20,000 from the lottery for selling the winning ticket.
