Good Thing Wichtia Woman's Fiance Double-Checked Ticket

Annoyed because her fiancé had purchased one of the Kansas Lottery's new $20 Instant Scratch Game Books for himself but not for her, a Wichita woman went out and bought her own Game Book.

After Courtney Ontiveros, 29, was done scratching all the games in her Game Book she didn't think she had won anything.  Just in case, she asked her fiancé Adam Wagoner to check it for her. Good thing she asked and he did!  Wagoner quickly realized his fiancé had won $10,000.

"I'm really happy for her," said Wagoner.

"I am ecstatic - it's money in my pocket!" said an excited Ontiveros. "Even though everybody says I have good luck, you don't expect to win something like this. The most I've won before was $500, and that was earlier this month on a $2 ticket."

Onitiveros told Lottery officials she will use her prize money to catch up on bills and perhaps to purchase some special surprises for her three children.  Ontiveros is employed at one of the Kwik Shops in Wichita.

She purchased her lucky $10,000 ticket at QuikTrip 360, located at 3933 W. 13th Street in Wichita.
