Kansas Lottery’s Fast 5 leads to $22,000 Cash Prize for Garfield Resident
For the last couple of months, Gary Froetschner has been purchasing the Kansas Lottery's Fast 5 sampler twice a week. The $6 Fast 5 sampler includes Quick Pick tickets for Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto, Super Kansas Cash and 2by2. When checking his Fast 5 tickets from the October 14 drawings, Froetschner received a big surprise. He had matched both Red numbers 2 and 8 and both White numbers 6 and 21 in that night's 2by2 drawing, winning a $22,000 cash prize!

"I've never played 2by2 until I started buying the Fast 5 sampler," said the lucky winner. "I've won several free tickets and other small prizes playing the game. I never expected to win $22,000!"

Froetschner didn't realize he was holding the $22,000 winning ticket until a couple of weeks after the October 14 drawing.

"I was busy harvesting and cutting milo," said Froetschner. "When I checked my tickets at the bar where I always buy my tickets, I thought something was wrong with the self-checker because a message came up that said to sign the back of my ticket and claim it at the Lottery. I asked the bar's owner to check my ticket and when he scanned it, he looked at me and said, 'You just won big money!' To celebrate, I bought a round of drinks for everyone."

Froetschner and his wife Brenda, who have been married 37 years, have three grown children and four grandchildren. They plan to build a new deck on their house and purchase a hot tub with their winnings.
Baileyville Resident Wins $22,000 on Free 2by2 Ticket!
Martha Dalinghaus, 52, has never been so happy about winning a free ticket. It was a free 2by2 ticket that won her $22,000 in the August 3 drawing!

"I play all the lottery games and have been since the beginning of the Lottery," said the Baileyville winner. "When I went to the store Monday, I had matched one number in a previous 2by2 drawing, and the prize for that was a free 2by2 ticket."

That free ticket turned out to be very timely for Dalinghaus when she matched both Red numbers 14 and 17 and both White numbers 4 and 19 in that night's 2by2 drawing.

"I'm pretty low key," she said. "So when I checked the ticket myself and realized I must have won $22,000 because the machine said the prize had to be claimed at the Lottery, I didn't say anything to anyone in the store. I thought I'd better tell my husband first."

Dalinghaus and her husband Joe are lifelong Kansans who farm near Baileyville. Martha is also the owner of CMT Designs in Seneca, a small t-shirt screen printing business. The Dalinghauses were high school sweethearts and just celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary. They have three grown sons and eight grandchildren.

The big winner says she and her husband will use the prize money to pay bills and also to help out a very close friend who was just diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. "We're organizing a fundraiser for her, and this will really help," said Dalinghaus.

The Dalinghaus Family has seen some challenges of their own. Joe was very badly hurt in an industrial accident several years ago and suffered nearly fatal encephalitis in 2012.

"We're very thankful for everything we have," said Dalinghaus. "It's an awesome feeling to win this kind of money and it will really come in handy."

Dalinghaus got her lucky 2by2 ticket at Seneca Travel Shop, located at 503 North Street in Seneca.

Salina Resident Wins $22,000 2by2 Top Prize Playing Fast 5 Sampler
Last Friday, Mike Lagerman of Salina started off his weekend by purchasing a Kansas Lottery Fast 5 sampler, which gave him a $1 Quick Pick ticket on each of five different lottery games – Powerball, Mega Millions, Hot Lotto, Super Kansas Cash and 2by2. The 43-year-old ended his weekend winning a $22,000 top prize after matching all numbers in the September 12 2by2 drawing! The winning numbers were Red 12 and 14 and White 05 and 17.

"I buy a Fast 5 sampler every Wednesday and Friday because I think it's an easier way to buy tickets," said Lagerman. "On Sunday mornings, I meet a group of guys for coffee at a local convenience store. While I'm there I always check my tickets. When I checked my 2by2 ticket Sunday morning the self-checker read, 'Sign back of ticket. Claim at Lottery.' Since I'd never seen that message before, I asked one of the ladies working if she would check my ticket. She about had a cow when she realized I had won $22,000."

After signing the back of his winning ticket, Lagerman went home to share the good news with his wife Joni.

"When I got home, Joni was surprised I was home so early," said Lagerman. "She was really surprised when I showed her my winning ticket. After putting it in a safe place, I went back to the store and finished having coffee with my friends. Everyone was very happy and excited I had won."

The Lagermans, who have four children together, have been married two years. They recently purchased a new home and plan to use their winnings to pay off household items they purchased.
