Norwich Resident Wins $1 Million Raffle Prize
The winner of the $1 million prize in this year's Holiday
Millionaire Raffle is Nancy Hubble of Norwich. The 57-year-old
winner claimed the ticket late yesterday afternoon at Lottery
headquarters, a week after the drawing in which raffle ticket
number 120298 was drawn as the $1 million winner.
"When I went to the Lottery website that night to check our
tickets, the first thing I saw was a photo of the winning number
announcement and the lady holding a case that had a number in it
that looked very familiar," Hubble said.
Hubble and her "longtime partner and best friend" Todd Lintel
told Lottery officials they had eight raffle tickets between
"I had five tickets," Lintel said. "And, unbeknownst to me,
Nancy had three."
Hubble said she had purchased the three tickets at different
locations, but hadn't told anybody she had them.
"I don't know why I didn't tell anyone I had the tickets," she
said. "I guess I didn't think I'd win anything. Todd is always the
Hubble's happy story is also bittersweet. The time when
she checked her tickets on the Lottery's website, a little after
midnight on New Year's Eve, was almost the exact time her
19-year-old daughter Kacy was killed in a car accident on New
Year's Eve 12 years ago.
"Right away Todd said, 'Kacy did this, I know she did,'" Hubble
said with tears in her eyes. "And when I called my son Skylar that
night to tell him I'd won, he told me he was sitting outside
thinking about Kacy at the moment I called."
The emotional winner said they were still pondering what to do
with the money.
"This is really a blessing to us," said Hubble. "I think
we're going to invest in some things, and because we love to hunt
and fish, we may also take a fishing trip to Florida."
Hubble owns her own business, Inland Corporation, a paving
company in Norwich.
Coincidentally when Hubble was at Lottery headquarters, Governor
Sam Brownback was also there to attend a meeting and posed for a
picture with the $1 million winner. It was also the first "big
winner photo" for the Kansas Lottery's new Executive Director,
Terry Presta, who started in his position this week.
The store that sold the $1 million Holiday Millionaire Raffle
ticket is Casey's General Store 2308, located at 442 East D Avenue
in Kingman. For selling the ticket, the store becomes
eligible for a $1,000 bonus.
