Patricia McNeal of Olathe was already excited for the weekend because her favorite football team is playing in a big game this Sunday. Now she has more reasons to be excited; 25,000 reasons, to be exact! She won $25,000 playing the $5 High Roller instant scratch game!
“I’m still in shock! I can’t believe how lucky I am,” said McNeal. “I bought two of the High Roller tickets, and took them home to play. I poured some wine, put on a TV show, and started to scratch. Once I figured out how much I had won, I started screaming for my daughter to come look at it!”
They took the ticket back to a retailer to check it. Once they confirmed it was a big win, McNeal started to celebrate right there in the store!
“The workers at the store couldn’t believe it either,” McNeal said. “They looked at the ticket and their jaws dropped. Everyone was so excited!”
McNeal said she doesn’t have any plans for the money just yet.
“I know I’ll pay off some bills, and fix up my car,” she said. “After that, I’m not sure! I’m still so excited, I haven’t figured it all out yet.”
The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven 24465 at 951 South Parker in Olathe. There are still four top prizes left in the $5 High Roller instant game, as well as thousands in other cash prizes.
