TOPEKA – A Junction City resident received a surprise of a lifetime when checking his Hot Lotto ticket Saturday night, according to a press release from the Kansas Lottery. The lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous, matched all numbers in the Jan. 30 Hot Lotto drawing to win a jackpot prize worth $1,550,000. Gambling on the lottery is something that has clearly paid off for this man. Though this man was lucky to win the lottery, there are a lot of other ways for people to gamble to try and win some money. Online casinos, like 우리카지노, allow people to play a range of casino games, potentially winning some cash rewards. Though this isn’t the same as winning the lottery, it could still provide a nice amount of money.

“Saturday night, I scanned my ticket on the store’s lottery checker and the message read, ‘Sign back of ticket. Claim at Lottery,'” said the winner. “I’ve never seen a message like that, so while I was pumping gas I looked up the winning Hot Lotto numbers on my phone. I took a screen shot of the winning numbers and sent a photo of my ticket to a friend because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing was real.”

The lucky winner matched all Hot Lotto numbers on a $2 Quick Pick Sizzler ticket.

“Winning this much money is surreal,” the winner said. “Now I can focus on school and not worry about working. I haven’t told my parents yet and I can’t wait to surprise them.”

The winning ticket was purchased at Hy-Vee Gas 1398, located at 206 Leavenworth St. in Manhattan. For selling the jackpot-winning ticket the store is eligible for a $2,500 selling bonus.
