Hutchinson Resident Claims $22,000 2by2 Prize

The Kansas Lottery's 2by2 game has been a hot game for players recently.  In the last couple of weeks, three players have each won $22,000 playing the game.  After Saturday night's 2by2 drawing another Kansas Lottery player won a $22,000 cash prize and he claimed his winning ticket today at Lottery headquarters in Topeka.

Stacy Bush of Hutchinson matched both Red numbers 04 and 24 and both White numbers 09 and 16 on a multi-draw ticket in the September 7 drawing and won a $22,000 cash prize.  The lucky winner picked his own winning numbers using his daughter's and mother's birthdays.

"I played these same numbers for at least a year," said Bush.  "I quit playing about a month ago because my numbers never came up.  Last Friday, I decided to try again with the same numbers and ended up winning Saturday night.  I couldn't believe it."

After the drawing Saturday night, Bush looked up the winning numbers on the Lottery's website.  When he discovered he had won such a large cash prize he couldn't wait to call a few friends and family members.

"Everyone knew I was serious because I called at 12:30 a.m.," said the winner.  "My mom was really excited for me.  I had a hard time sleeping that night knowing I had to wait before I could claim my prize."

Bush made the trip to Topeka first thing this morning after calling his boss to ask for the day off.

"When I explained to my boss why I needed the day off, she said I had a great excuse," said Bush.  "She was very happy for me, too."

Bush, who works in maintenance at Strafford West Apartments, has one daughter.  He plans to buy something special for his daughter and his mother with his prize winnings and will save the rest.

The winning ticket was purchased at QuikTrip 353, located at 110 S. Rock Rd. in Wichita.
