Clearwater Resident in the Winning "Club" with $10,000
Last Friday, while purchasing Mega Millions tickets for the
record-breaking jackpot, Brian Christensen decided to purchase a
few Kansas Lottery scratch tickets, too. Although he didn't
win on his Mega Millions tickets, the Clearwater resident won a
$10,000 cash prize with the $120 he spent on $100,000 Club instant
"I bought $100 in Mega Million tickets and $120 in the $100,000
Club game," said Christensen. "I took my tickets home, sat on
the porch and scratched them. I was really excited when I saw
I had won $10,000. Out of the six scratch tickets I bought, I
won two $40 prizes, one $20 prize, and then the big one. I
wish I would have hit the Mega Millions jackpot, too."
Christensen, a daily lottery player, has had good luck playing
Kansas Lottery instant scratch games. In 2010, he won a
$2,000 cash prize playing a $2 Bonus Crossword instant scratch
"When I buy scratch tickets, I usually buy the $20 games since
they have higher top prizes," said Christensen. "I've been
playing since the Lottery started in 1987 and I can finally say I
won a big prize!"
Christensen, who is single, plans to remodel his home with his
winnings. He purchased the winning ticket at Casey's General
Store 2871, located at 152 N. 4th St.
