The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, bought his winning ticket at the Speedway gas station, located at 1677 Range Road in Kimball.
“I purchase a Lottery ticket every morning on my way to work when I stop for coffee,” said the player. “One morning, I won $500 on the $500,000 Frenzy multiplier game, so the next morning, I bought four more.
“My wife was scratching the tickets that night and said, ‘You’re not going to work tomorrow, you won $5,000!’ I looked the ticket over and said ‘No, I won $500,000!’ We were both shocked. It was a great feeling.”
The lucky 55-year-old player visited Lottery headquarters to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay bills and take care of some home renovations.
