A man from Kansas has proved those who criticise his lottery habit wrong after winning $742,354 on the Super Kansas Cash game.
The lucky winner, who is from Melvern, won his cash on Monday, November 6th, and chose to remain anonymous when he claimed his prize. The winning numbers in the Super Kansas Cash drawing were 5, 9, 13, 15 and 31, with Super Cash Ball 7, and the lucky winner’s quick pick ticket matched them all. A couple from Kansas won the Super Kansas Cash jackpot after playing their fortune cookie numbers.
“I didn’t realise I had the winning ticket until yesterday,” the winner said as he claimed his prize from Kansas Lottery officials. “I scanned the ticket myself, but the machine didn’t show the amount I won, so I asked one of the store clerks I know to check the ticket for me.” The lucky Super Kansas Cash jackpot winner said that once the store clerk told him exactly what he’d won, he was speechless.
The Kansas man, who buys lottery tickets for every drawing, says that he won’t stop playing. “People give me a hard time for playing so much, but if you don’t play you can’t win,” he said, adding that he works hard, and he likes to try and help people out as much as he can. An Indiana man who won on the Cash 5 Lottery also said he wouldn’t stop playing the lottery, while a lottery player from New Jersey who won big for the third time said that he would continue playing, and hope for another big win.
“I’m a firm believer of what comes around goes around,” the Super Kansas Cash winner said, adding that his wife even had a premonition that something good was about to happen to them. “Maybe I’ll get lucky and win again?” A lucky feeling was credited for a New Zealand Powerball player’s big $10.3 million win.
Now that the winnings are in the bank, the Kansas Lottery winner said he’ll take the rest of 2017 off work so that he can concentrate on his farm. “Now I won’t have to worry about my day job,” he explained. “I have a lot of fences to build and fix, plus I’d like to buy a new tractor.” A UK Lotto winner took home £1.2 million and went on to become a pig farmer.
