Leavenworth Co. Woman Claims Lottery Jackpot
04/29/2010

Usually when a wife tells her husband, “Honey, we’ve got to talk,” it doesn’t bode well for the husband. It was quite the opposite, however, for a Leavenworth County man when his 55-year-old wife whispered that in his ear last night. What she needed to talk to him about was the $756,399 jackpot she had won in the April 28 Super Kansas Cash drawing!

“I always check my Super Kansas Cash tickets on the Lottery website the night of the drawing,” said the lucky winner, who asked the Lottery to keep her identity a secret. “When I saw that the jackpot had been hit in northeast Kansas, I just had the feeling it was me. After I checked my tickets, I saw that it really WAS me!”

That’s when she went to her sleeping husband and woke him up, saying, “Honey, we’ve got to talk.” And what a story she had.

When the winner went into the store yesterday to purchase a Super Kansas Cash ticket for that night’s drawing, the clerk accidentally printed a Powerball ticket instead. Thinking the accident might be lucky, she bought the Powerball ticket printed in error, and then asked the clerk to print the $5 Quick Pick Super Kansas Cash ticket she had asked for originally.

“If the clerk would have printed the Super Kansas Cash ticket first, I probably wouldn’t have gotten the winning numbers,” the winner said. “So the accident was a good thing.”

The winning numbers in the April 28 drawing were 03-08-23-27-28 Cashball 06. The lucky ticket was sold at QuikTrip 235, located at 11065 Pflumm Road in Lenexa. For selling the jackpot-winning Super Kansas Cash ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 selling bonus.

The winners, who have three children, are undecided how they will spend their prize money. After federal taxes of $189,100 and state taxes of $37,820 are withheld, they will receive a check for $529,479.

The best advice the jackpot winner has for other players trying to hit it big is this: “You just have to ‘think lucky.’ Be positive and be persistent.”

The Super Kansas Cash jackpot returns to $100,000 for Saturday’s drawing.
