Topeka Resident Claims Fourth Large Prize in Four Years; Wins $100,000 Top Prize Playing Happy Holidays Super Ticket!

Over the last five years, Richard Passow has had great lucky playing Kansas Lottery instant scratch games.  From 2012 to 2015, the Topeka resident has won a $1,000 cash prize each year.  Passow returned to the Kansas Lottery last week to claim another large prize.  This time, Passow claimed a $100,000 top prize he won playing the Lottery's $10 Happy Holidays Super Ticket!

"I really like playing the Happy Holidays Super Tickets because it seems like there are a lot of winners in the game," said Passow.  "When I bought my ticket, I scratched it while I was in the store.  On one of the games, I matched three symbols in a row and it showed I had won $100,000.  I thought there must be some kind of mistake, so I showed the store clerk the ticket.  When she verified I had won, I was so excited and nervous."

After signing the back of his winning ticket, Passow put it in his coat pocket for safekeeping.   

"I was afraid the ticket would get stolen if I left it at home, so I kept it with me until I was able to get it claimed," said Passow.  "I've bought a few more Happy Holidays Super Tickets since my big win and won two $100 cash prizes. Now I can pay off my bills and buy a new pair of shoes. I'm definitely going to have a Happy Holiday this year!"

The winning ticket was purchased at Lakeview Amoco, located at 3000 SE Croco Rd. in Topeka.  There is one $100,000 top prize remaining in the Happy Holidays Super Ticket as well as thousands of other cash prizes in the game.
