A grocery store trip for sushi and coffee turned into a $20,000 win for one lucky Wichita woman! While at Dillons, Alexis Hatter grabbed three $2 Double Bonus Crossword tickets from the vending machine. It wasn’t until she settled in for the evening to eat dinner and watch some shows when she realized she won the top prize on the second ticket she scratched!
One word led to another for the winner as she kept scratching. “I was counting my words and had to check and check” Hatter shared. “I even had my boyfriend’s grandma check and sure enough, it was $20,000!”
Hatter reflected that she was “shaking” because she couldn’t believe her luck! She said that while she only plays once in a while, she will always play the Crossword tickets.
With all of her family happy for her, Hatter plans to save most of the winnings, but will also take her father out for a nice dinner and buy some new items for when she graduates this coming December.
The winning ticket was sold at Dillons 49 at 10222 W. 21st St. N. in Wichita. There are still 10 $20,000 top prizes left in the $2 Double Bonus Crossword instant scratch game, as well as thousands in other prizes!
