Lucky Jewels is Lucky Game for Wichita Resident

A cup of coffee and a lottery ticket is how Bradley Ashcraft likes to start his day.  His morning routine paid off yesterday after he purchased a Kansas Lottery $20 Lucky Jewels instant scratch ticket and won winning a $10,000 cash prize!

"After I bought my coffee and ticket I went on to work," said Ashcraft.  "Before the rest of the crew showed up I scratched my ticket.  The first game I played I won $50 and was happy with that."

When playing the Lucky Jewels game, players get five games on one ticket and can win up to 26 times.

"On the second game, I won $1,000," said Ashcraft.  "Before I knew it, I had won on each game and had to add up my winnings.  I couldn't believe every play on my ticket was a winner."

Ashcraft seems to have good luck playing Kansas Lottery games.  Earlier this year, he won a 50" television with a Blu-ray home theatre system in a Lottery second-chance drawing.

"My boss and coworkers are always commenting on how lucky I am," said Ashcraft.  "Since I'm a member of the Lottery's Players Club I enter drawings all the time.  My family and I love the TV I won in the Tech the Halls promotion.  And just a couple of weeks ago, I won $5,000 at a casino."

Although Ashcraft seems to be lucky, he did offers words of wisdom to other players.

"People should look at playing the Lottery as entertainment only," said Ashcraft.  "Never spend more than you can afford."

The winner, who works for Kalian Electric Service, was undecided how he would spend his winnings.

"My wife has made a list though," said Ashcraft.  "I'm sure the money will be put to good use."

The winning ticket was purchased at Casey's General Store, located at 4605 N Maize Rd in Maize.
