Lenexa Nurse will use $22,000 Lottery Prize to pay off Student Loans

Stacey Folsom is a savvy lottery player.  She plays 2by2 every day of the week, and to make sure she's eligible to win double prizes on Tuesdays, Stacy always buys a seven-day multi-draw ticket.

"I'm a loyal fan of the Kansas Lottery and 2by2 is my favorite game to play because you have multiple chances to win," said the Lenexa resident.

After playing the game for years, Folsom did what all 2by2 players try to do - she matched both White numbers and both Red numbers in the Monday, September 4, drawing and won $22,000! The numbers she matched were ones she picked herself: Red 12 and 13 and White 19 and 25.  Folsom knows is she had matched her numbers on a Tuesday, her winnings would have doubled to $44,000, but she's still very happy with what she did win.

"I'm using the money to pay off all my student loans!" the happy winner said. Folsom, 30, is a Registered Nurse. She works full-time as an Occupational Health Nurse at Hillshire Brands in Kansas City, Kans., and part-time at Leawood Pediatrics in Leawood.

Folsom said she will definitely keep on playing her favorite game every day. She has won several $100 prizes in addition to the $22,000 prize she claimed this week, and still has her eye on that $44,000 2by2 prize she hopes to win in some future Tuesday drawing.  In addition to always buying seven-day multi-draw tickets, Folsom always buys her tickets at the same store.

"I already called the store to tell them I won $22,000. I said, 'Hey, it's Stacy, the 2by2 lady.' They knew right away who I was," she said with a smile.

Folsom purchases all her 2by2 multi-draw tickets at Hy-Vee Food & Drug 1508, located at 8501 W. 95th St. in Overland Park.

This was the third $22,000 2by2 ticket claimed at Kansas Lottery headquarters this week. The other two tickets were sold in Atchison (August 26 drawing) and Salina (September 2 drawing).

 More about 2by2:

2by2 is a daily game that offers eight ways to win and a top prize of $22,000.  Players can also play 2by2 Tuesday when they purchase a qualifying play to double any prizes won on Tuesday with a top prize of $44,000.  A qualifying 2by2 Tuesday play requires a ticket purchase of seven consecutive days or multiples of seven consecutive days (14, 21 and 28).  2by2 is a multi-state game with three states participating: Kansas, Nebraska and North Dakota.
