Lucky Russell Player Wins Grasshopper Mower in Lottery Drawing

A Kansas Lottery player from Russell has everything he needs to keep the yard in tip top shape, and then some!  James Noel is the grand prize in the Kansas Lottery's Hot Hopper Sizzler drawing, held July 12 at the 3i Show in Dodge City.

Noel, like tens of thousands of other players, became eligible for the drawing by purchasing a Hot Lotto Sizzler ticket and submitting the entry forms they received with their ticket purchases.

The Hot Hopper Sizzler grand prize includes a Grasshopper® zero turn mower with a dozer blade attachment, plus a chainsaw, leaf blower, lawn trimmer and safety glasses!  With the Lottery paying the mandatory income withholding taxes, the total value of the grand prize is approximately $18,800.

The 3i Show celebrated its 60th anniversary this year. Organized and managed by Western Kansas Manufacturers Association, the show provides an opportunity for exhibitors from all over the world to showcase their agri-business products.
