Hutchinson Couple Claims $250,000 Instant Win

The first top prize on the $30 Multiplier Super Ticket was claimed this week by a couple from Hutchinson. The $250,000 prize is the largest instant win in Kansas Lottery history, and there are still three top prizes left in the game!

The winning couple, who chose to remain anonymous, scratched the winning ticket on Saturday evening. "I had a $10 winning Trucks and Bucks ticket, and I decided to put it towards one of the $30 Multiplier tickets," said the man. "I only bought the one ticket, and I scratched it off in the store. I started at the very top of the ticket, and as I worked down the ticket, I got more and more winning symbols. I couldn't believe it."

His wife also couldn't believe their good fortune. "I didn't believe it at first. When I got home, he showed me the ticket, and I just assumed it was a prank ticket," she said. "It wasn't until we sat down and went through it line by line that I realized it was real."

The win comes at a great time for the couple. "I have been working towards retirement, and was hoping I could do it this year," said the man. "Now, I can retire for sure! No question about it. It's a huge relief for us."

"I would describe it as a life-enhancing event. What we needed, more than anything else, was some financial security as we both get close to retirement and this provides that to us and our family. It is truly a blessing for us," she added.

The couple says they plan to put the money towards retirement and bills, but the win also allows for them to organize a long dreamed about family vacation. "We're going to pay for a vacation for us, our kids, and our grandkids. We've always wanted to take a big trip together, and now we can!" she added with a smile.

The winning ticket was sold at Yesway 1043 at 1000 West 30th Avenue in Hutchinson. There are still three $250,000 top prizes, as well as tens of thousands of other winners left in the $30 Multiplier Super Ticket instant scratch game.
