The Lottery and Other Stories

Normally someone "wins" a lottery, but that word is never used in the story. What expression is used instead?

"Who," is a huge word in this context, as the story's lottery winner is the one to lose their life....... not really a win if you know what I mean. That's why you don't see the word win used, and you see "who is it."
