Second-Chance Winner gets Second Winning Ticket!

Henry Bittle is no stranger to winning Kansas Lottery prizes.  In 2011, the Wichita resident won a $40,000 grand prize in the Lottery's Riverfest Riches second-chance drawing.  Last week, the 61-year-old was at Lottery headquarters in Topeka to claim another big win.  This time, Bittle won a $10,000 cash prize in the November 10 Holiday Millionaire Raffle Early Bird drawing!

"This year, I bought my first raffle ticket October 25," said Bittle.  "I knew from last year, I had to buy one early and it's a good thing I did!"

As with last year's Holiday Millionaire Raffle, the Kansas Lottery offered players 10 chances to win $10,000 in five Early Bird drawings.  The Early Bird drawings were held each Sunday from October 13 through November 10, 2013.

"I've had good luck playing the Holiday Millionaire Raffle," said Bittle.  "I've won $500 twice."

"He's lucky," said Bittle's daughter April, who accompanied her dad to Topeka.  "It seems like he's always winning."

The father/daughter duo, who purchased their Holiday Millionaire Raffle tickets together, is also hoping to win a cash prize in the December 31 grand prize drawing, in which one player will win $1 million.  As for his most recent $10,000 win, Bittle will share his winnings with his daughter who is expecting a baby girl soon.

The winning ticket was purchased at QuikTrip 366, located at 1620 S. Webb Rd. in Wichita.
