Queen Anne resident Andrew Greenwald is well known at the neighborhood Safeway, where employees call him the “luck sucker.”

He won $100,000 playing the Washington Lottery’s Hit 5 game nine years ago.

“I play it a couple times a week,” Greenwald said. “It’s Quick Pick; I don’t pick any of the numbers.”

Greenwald recently celebrated his third big win, and the second at the Queen Anne Safeway at 2100 Queen Anne Ave. N. He hit all five numbers on his $5 Hit 5 card, winning $120,000, or $91,000 after taxes.

“I do really well there,” Greenwald said about the Queen Anne Safeway. “I go in there all the time. It’s good. I’ve been shopping there for over 40 years.”

Greenwald said he’s lived in Queen Anne since 1967 and attended Queen Anne High School.

“I’ve been living in Queen Anne most of my life, but I travel a lot,” he said, “but Queen Anne has always been my home.”

Nine years before Greenwald’s first big lottery win in Queen Anne, he also won a sizable pot at the Fred Meyer in Kent.

Greenwald said he used his latest winnings to buy a 2008 Jaguar, and he gave some money to his daughter. He’s also planning to visit a former band mate in Holland.

During his time living in England, Greenwald was in the Liverpool 5, and then started the band Natural Act with his friend who is now living in Holland. He said they toured with the Rolling Stones in 1974.

“I quit playing music in the ‘70s and opened a booking agency in the late ‘70s,” he said.

When that didn’t work out, he found a job as a training manager at Harbor Freight Tools, he said. His mother took ill around the time he won the lottery the second time.

“I haven’t done much of anything since 2007,” he said.

Washington’s Lottery reports the odds of matching all five white balls for Hit 5 is 1 in 576,000.

But Greenwald doesn’t choose his own numbers. It’s not so much luck as attitude, he said.

“I expect to win, and I do. It’s just that simple,” he said. “I put a dollar in the machine and I expect to get a winner.”

Developers plan to raze the Queen Anne Safeway in a little more than a year to make way for a larger, urban-concept store with apartment units on top. Greenwald said he’ll miss the store when it goes away.

“I’ll go back and try the new building,” he said. “I don’t think it’s the building. I think it’s the attitude.”
