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.

Peru, Kansas Man Wins $22,000 on Free 2by2 Ticket
Many Kansas Lottery players enjoy playing 2by2 because it's fairly easy to match one number and win a free ticket. Bobby Pappen is one of those players. He loves free 2by2 tickets, especially the free ticket that won him $22,000 in the July 1 drawing! Pappen won the prize by matching both Red numbers 14 and 18 and both White numbers 06 and 08.

Pappen and his wife Alice traveled to Lottery headquarters in Topeka today from their home in Peru, Kansas, near Coffeyville, to claim the $22,000 prize. Pappen told Lottery officials he has always enjoyed playing lottery games.

"I play 2by2 every day, but I never figured I'd win a prize like this," Pappen said. "I was shocked!"

Pappen, who has a heart condition, said he was so shocked after he found out he'd won $22,000 that he had to take a nitroglycerin pill.

"Needless to say, he was very, very excited," Alice Pappen said.

Alice said she kept the winning ticket in her wallet until they could come to Lottery headquarters to claim it. The Pappens celebrated their 37th anniversary last month. They have one grown son, and they also count five dogs as part of their family.

"We're going to use this prize money to fix the roof of our home, do some other repairs and build a fence for our dogs," they said.

The $22,000 2by2 ticket was purchased at Conoco Phillips, located at 512 Northeast Street in Coffeyville.
Hutchinson Business Owner Wins Second $22,000 Lottery Prize in Three Months!
Perry Rice, 47, of Hutchinson, Kansas is the first to admit he's having incredible lottery luck this year. On March 4, he won $22,000 playing 2by2 when his ticket matched both Red and both White numbers. Amazingly, he did the same thing May 26! His 2by2 ticket again matched both Red and both White numbers and won him a second $22,000 grand prize.

"I don't know how I got to be so lucky, but I hope it continues," said Rice. "The Lottery sure has been good to me this year." Rice said he buys a $25 2by2 ticket every single day and always picks his own numbers. He often wins free tickets for matching one number.

"That's one thing I really like about 2by2 you win a lot of free tickets," he said. It was, in fact, a free ticket on which Rice won $22,000 this week. In his March 4 win, Rice picked his own numbers.

"Some of the numbers I use have personal meaning and some are just numbers I like, but I always play the exact same numbers," he disclosed. "If I was giving advice to other players, I'd tell them to do like I do and play consistently. I also look at the frequency charts in Kansas Winners to see which numbers come up the most." Kansas Winners is a free newsletter published quarterly by the Kansas Lottery and available at all Lottery retailers.

Rice is a lifelong Kansan and the owner of Rice's Exhaust Service in Hutchinson. He plans to use his latest prize money to become debt-free.

McPherson Resident's Fast 5s Purchase leads to $22,000 Win
According to Christopher Higgins of McPherson, if it wasn't for the Kansas Lottery's "Fast 5s Sampler", which includes a $2 Powerball ticket, $1 Mega Millions ticket, $1 Hot Lotto ticket, $1 Super Kansas Cash ticket and a $1 2by2 ticket, he probably wouldn't have ever tried his luck playing 2by2. The McPherson resident is glad he made the Fast 5s purchase last week after winning a $22,000 top prize playing 2by2!

Higgins won the top prize by matching both Red numbers 08 and 14 and both White numbers 04 and 24 in the April 23 drawing.

"After work last Friday, I stopped at a convenience store to check my tickets and happened to run into my sister's mother-in-law," said Higgins. "As we were talking, I was scanning my tickets and was excited when I realized I had won $4 on one of the games I played. When I scanned my 2by2 ticket, the scanner instructed me to sign the back of my ticket. Since I had never seen that message before, my sister's mother-in-law told me I should sign the back of the ticket and we asked a store clerk to scan it on their lottery terminal. When the clerk told me how much I had won I was dumbstruck. I didn't think I was hearing her correctly."

Once the shock of the win turned to extreme excitement, Higgins drove the few blocks to his mom's house to share the good news.

"She was sitting out on her deck relaxing when I arrived," explained Higgins. "When I told her how much I had won, she didn't believe me. She said I had a sheepish look and made me repeat myself several times before it finally sank in how much I had won."

In order to claim his prize at Lottery headquarters in Topeka, Higgins called his boss and asked for the day off.

"She didn't believe it either," said Higgins. "I finally had to put my mom on the phone to convince her. Since we had been acting silly at work earlier in the day, she thought I was pulling a prank."

Higgins, who works as a staffing supervisor for Kelly Services in McPherson, plans to give a portion of his winnings to two small churches his dad used to minister to and buy a few family members special gifts.

"We have a lot of Tauruses in the family, so we have a lot of upcoming birthdays," said Higgins. "Now I can buy them decent gifts this year."

The winning ticket was purchased at KAPS 1004, located at 1340 N. Main St. in McPherson.

Kansas Resident's Lucky Streak Continues with $22,004 Win
David Howell enjoys playing Keno so much he is known as "Keno Dave" among family and friends. The Wichita resident has been on a lucky streak lately, winning five 6-spot Keno cash prizes for a total of approximately $11,000. After today, he might also be known as "2by2 Dave." Howell matched both Red numbers 08 and 15 and both White numbers 05 and 13 in the August 6 2by2 drawing, winning a $22,000 top prize!

In addition to the $22,000 top prize, Howell also matched one Red number 08 and one White number 05, winning $3 on his $5 2by2 ticket. Plus, he matched one Red number on another play bringing his total winnings to $22,004!

"I play all lottery games every day," said Howell. "If you don't play, you can't win. I play so often, I teach other people how to play. Sometimes, I'll share a ticket with one of the store clerks. If we win, we split the prize. I think being generous brings you luck."

According to Howell, when he was at Lottery headquarters in Topeka last Monday to claim a Keno cash prize, he told Lottery officials he was going to be back with another big win.

"When I left, I said I was going to be back soon with a 2by2 prize," said Howell. "I just didn't think it was going to be this soon. Maybe my luck will continue and I'll be back again next Monday."

Howell, who has three children, plans to use part of his winnings to purchase textbooks for one of his daughters, who is attending Wichita State University this fall.

The winning ticket was purchased at Presto 1638, located at 2001 S. Oliver in Wichita.
