Merriam Resident Wins $10,000 on Kansas Lottery Veterans Ticket

When he arrived at Lottery headquarters late Friday afternoon, Jacob Mossman, 28, was still in the "I don't believe it" stage of winning a big lottery prize.

"It doesn't seem quite real yet," the Merriam resident explained to Lottery officials. "I stopped to buy gas and bought a few lottery tickets while I was there, including two  $2 Red, Wild & Blue tickets."

Mossman was scratching the tickets in his vehicle when he discovered he had uncovered a $10,000 top prize on one of his Red, Wild & Blue tickets.

"I looked it over quite a few times to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me," he said. "Then I put it in my wallet and didn't tell anyone about it until I brought it to the Lottery."

Mossman was pleased that the Red, Wild & Blue ticket on which he won is one of the Kansas Lottery's Veterans Benefit tickets.  Veterans Benefit tickets are like any other scratch tickets, but proceeds from the games go directly to programs that benefit Kansas military veterans. The Kansas Lottery is in its 11th year of selling Veterans Benefit tickets and has transferred more than $10.2 million to veterans programs so far.  In addition to Red, Wild & Blue, the other Veterans Benefit game currently for sale is  $1 Star Spangled 7's.

"I like that these tickets help our veterans," said Mossman. "Plus, I've had pretty good luck on them."

Mossman purchased his lucky $10,000 winning Red, Wild & Blue ticket at Gasmart USA 8, located at 2243 S. Princeton in Ottawa.
