Hutchinson Business Owner Wins Second $22,000 Lottery Prize in
Perry Rice, 47, of Hutchinson is
the first to admit he's having incredible lottery luck this
year. On March 4, he won $22,000 playing 2by2 when his ticket
matched both Red and both White numbers. Amazingly, he did
the same thing May 26! His 2by2 ticket again matched both Red
and both White numbers and won him a second $22,000 grand
"I don't know how I got to be so
lucky, but I hope it continues," said Rice. "The Lottery sure has
been good to me this year." Rice said he buys a $25 2by2
ticket every single day and always picks his own numbers. He
often wins free tickets for matching one number.
"That's one thing I really
like about 2by2 - you win a lot of free tickets," he said. It
was, in fact, a free ticket on which Rice won $22,000 this week. In
his March 4 win, Rice picked his own numbers.
"Some of the numbers I use have
personal meaning and some are just numbers I like, but I always
play the exact same numbers," he disclosed. "If I was giving
advice to other players, I'd tell them to do like I do and play
consistently. I also look at the frequency charts in Kansas Winners
to see which numbers come up the most." Kansas Winners is a free
newsletter published quarterly by the Kansas Lottery and available
at all Lottery retailers.
Rice is a lifelong Kansan and
the owner of Rice's Exhaust Service in Hutchinson. He plans to use
his latest prize money to become debt-free.
Rice's free 2by2 ticket, which
turned into a $22,000 winner, was printed at 4th & Whiteside Station, located at 828
Avenue in Hutchinson.
