Manhattan Resident has Unforgettable Lunch Hour - Wins $10,000 Top Prize!

Clint Brown of Manhattan had an unforgettable lunch hour yesterday afternoon.  The 28-year-old purchased one of the Kansas Lottery's $2 Money Multiplier instant scratch tickets and won a $10,000 top prize!

"I buy $5 worth of scratch tickets every morning before work," explained Brown.  "I stopped at a convenience store during my lunch hour to cash in a winning ticket I had gotten from the tickets I had bought in the morning."

Brown cashed in a $2 winning ticket for a $2 Money Multiplier game and couldn't believe his luck when he discovered he had won a $10,000 top prize.

"When I realized how much I had won, I immediately started shaking," said Brown.  "I had one of my co-workers take a look at the ticket to make sure I had added up my numbers right.  When he confirmed I had won $10,000, I called my boss to get the afternoon off to claim my prize."

When playing the Money Multiplier game, players must add all three numbers for each game. If the total is "7," the player wins the prize shown for that game.  If the total is "11," players can win double the prize shown for that game, or if the total is "21," players can win triple the prize shown for that game.  After adding the three numbers on his winning ticket, Brown came up with a total of "7," and was very surprised when the prize shown was $10,000!

"I've had good luck playing scratch tickets," said Brown.  "A couple of weeks ago, I won $250 on a $1 ticket and last week I won $100 on a Money Multiplier ticket.  That's why I tried my luck again and bought another ticket.  The way my luck is going, maybe I'll be back soon to claim another big prize."

Brown, who works for Von Elling Electrical as an electrician, plans to save his winnings for a down payment on a home.

He purchased his winning ticket at Dara's Fast Lane 5, located at 1102 Laramie in Manhattan.
