Olathe Woman Claims $75,000 Prize

Kathy Cain of Olathe made a spur of the moment decision to get three $10 Cleopatra Slots tickets while at the gas station. That decision to play the Kansas Lottery turned into a $75,000 win!

Cain said she wasn't feeling extra lucky that day. "I just decided I wanted to play some lottery, and that I was going to have some fun" she said. She bought three tickets, and the third ticket she scratched was the big winner!

Cain is a big fan of the $10 Cleopatra Slots tickets, and she has a very unique method to her scratching. "I go down instead of across, and do one row at a time. By the time I had scratched the left side of the ticket, I knew it was a big winner, but I didn't know how much" Said Cain.

Instead of finishing her scratching, she got back in the car and drove to her daughter's house, and asked her to help finish the ticket so they could share the excitement together! Neither of them could believe how much the ticket was worth at first glance, but they counted all the symbols over and over again until the reality of their big win sunk in.

According to Cain, the win comes at a great time of the year. "We're definitely going to have a great Christmas this year!" she said. Aside from Christmas presents, Cain said she plans on upgrading some appliances for her and her kids, and is wanting to buy a small travel trailer for weekend getaways.

"I've always loved to travel around and see new places, so I'm hoping I can find an affordable camper for me and my family." She said.

The ticket was purchased at Murphy Express #8794 at 481 North K-7 Highway in Olathe, Kansas. As of December 17, there are no top prizes left in the $10 Cleopatra Slots game.
