Topeka Resident Claims Record Super Kansas Cash Jackpot worth $3.62 Million!

A Topeka resident has claimed the record-breaking Super Kansas Cash jackpot of $3,617,726 from last Saturday night's drawing!  The lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous, matched all numbers on a $5 Quick Pick ticket.  The winning Super Kansas Cash numbers in the July 29 drawing are 14-22-24-27-30 Super Cashball 9. 

"My husband and I were coming home from visiting one of my brothers Saturday when we stopped for gas," said the winner.  "I only buy lottery tickets maybe three or four times a year, but for some reason, I decided to get a Super Kansas Cash ticket since the drawing was that night." 

The next afternoon, one of her brothers came over to her house for lunch and happened to have a printout of all the winning numbers from Saturday night's drawings. 

"We were checking our tickets, not thinking much of it when I realized I had matched all numbers on one of the lines on my ticket," the winner said.  "I was stunned. My husband buys lottery tickets a couple of times of week and has always said he would win a jackpot someday.  Every time he's said that, I would say, 'I wish you would hurry up and win.  We're not getting any younger.' I never thought I would be the one to win." 

The jackpot winner and her husband will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in the near future and plan to celebrate by doing something they've always wanted to do. 

"I've always wanted to go on a cruise," the winner said.  "We wouldn't have been able to afford to go if I hadn't won.  We'll also be able to pay off our house and my car.  After that, I'm not sure what we'll do." 

The jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at Casey's General Store 2839, located at 210 E. Franklin in Pomona.  For selling the winning ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 selling bonus.
