Melvern Resident Claims $742,354 Super Kansas Cash Jackpot!

A lucky Melvern resident has claimed the $742,354 Super Kansas Cash jackpot from Monday night's drawing!  The winner, who wished to remain anonymous, matched all numbers on a $5 Quick Pick ticket.  The winning numbers in the November 6 Super Kansas Cash drawing were 05-09-13-15-31 Super Cash Ball 07. 

"I didn't realize I had the winning ticket until yesterday," said the winner.  "I scanned the ticket myself, but the machine didn't show the amount I won, so I asked one of the store clerks I know to check the ticket for me.  When she told me I had won the Super Kansas Cash jackpot, I couldn't believe it." 

The lucky winner said he buys lottery tickets for every drawing and will continue doing so. 

"People give me a hard time for playing so much, but if you don't play you can't win," the winner said.  "I work hard and I try to help people as much as I can.  I'm a firm believer of what comes around goes round.  My wife even said she knew something good was going to happen.  Maybe I'll get lucky and win again?" 

The Melvern resident said winning a jackpot prize will allow him to take time off work until the first of the year, so he can concentrate on his farm.  "I've got a lot of things to do on the farm," said the winner.  "Now I won't have to worry about my day job.  I have a lot of fences to build and fix, plus I'd like to buy a new tractor." 

The jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at Circle L Convenience Store, located at 218 N.W. Emporia in Melvern.  For selling the ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 selling bonus.
