Bingo? More like Bing-whoa! Wichita Woman Wins $25,000

Mary San Miguel of Wichita wasn't planning on buying a ticket last week. However, a fortuitous lack of parking lead San Miguel to a nearby gas station, where she decided to play the $5 Bingo Numbers instant scratch game.

"I left work and went to see my mom, but there wasn't a parking spot available, so I thought I'd run by the gas station real quick to kill some time," she said. "I decided to try the Bingo Numbers game, and when I scratched it off, I thought I had won $50!"

The clerk at the gas station scanned the ticket, and when it printed a claim form, that's when she knew it was worth more than $50. "I took the ticket with me to my mom's house, and I said that I thought I had won $1,000. Everyone wanted to see the ticket, so I handed it to them," San Miguel said.

Her family was quick to point out that the ticket was worth a little bit more than she thought. "When they told me it was worth $25,000, I went into shock! I still am having a hard time believing it. It probably won't completely sink in until I'm spending the money," she added.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Stop & Shop on 1826 W. 13 Street North in Wichita, Kansas. There are still two top prizes left in the $5 Bingo Numbers instant scratch game.
