Barnes Residents Bring Home $20,000 Bonus Crossword Prize

Scott Wesche and his wife Bonnie truly enjoy playing the Kansas Lottery's $2 Bonus Crossword instant scratch tickets.  They said they had won every prize there was to win on the game, except the $20,000 top prize.  And now they can say they've won that one, too!

The Wesches, who are residents of Barnes, purchased five Bonus Crossword tickets last Saturday.  Bonnie was scratching them as Scott drove home, and the second one she scratched got pretty interesting.

"I was counting the words and started getting confused," she recalled. "I was counting so many words I thought I must be counting some twice. Eventually, I figured out I had ten words, which is the most you can get.  Just to be sure, we stopped at a convenience store to have the ticket verified. When the clerk told us we had to claim it at the Lottery, we knew then we really had something big."

They sure did!  The Wesches plan to use their $20,000 prize to pay off hospital and household bills.  They also plan to keep on playing $2 Bonus Crossword tickets whenever they have a little extra spending money.

Scott Weschke is employed as a welder at Sharps Manufacturing in Blue Rapids. The couple has been married for 24 years.

The lucky $2 Bonus Crossword ticket was purchased at Pony Express Service Center, located at 1898 All American Road in Hanover.
