Wichita Bonus Crossword Player Loves the Game Even More Now!

Carole Boyle, 66, of Wichita is like a lot of Kansas Lottery players - she loves playing $2 Bonus Crossword instant scratch tickets. In fact, Boyle says, "I like to scratch them right before I go to bed. Whether I win or not, I always enjoy Crossword."

Boyle had to admit, however, that it did significantly add to her enjoyment of the game when she scratched off a $20,000 top prize this week.  She termed herself "still in a daze" when she arrived in Topeka late yesterday afternoon to claim her prize.

"All the way driving here, I kept saying, 'Lord, please let it be so, please let it be so.' I'm so grateful for this win because the money is going to help me so much."

After scratching off the big prize Tuesday night, Boyle says she waited about "five seconds" before calling a friend, who quickly drove over to Boyle's house to examine the ticket for herself.

"We counted the words again and again, until we were really convinced I had uncovered ten and won the top prize," Boyle said. "Then we went down to the store together to have it verified.  It got to be a pretty exciting night!"

Boyle, whose family includes her daughter and son-in-law and their Schnoodle dog, plans to pay bills with some of the prize money and save the rest.

Boyle purchased her $20,000 Bonus Crossword ticket at Taylor Retail Liquor, located at 4800 W. Central in Wichita.
