A Salina man hit it big, winning $25,000 on a scratch lottery ticket.
According to the Kansas Lottery, Thomas Campbell Junior scratched off a $25,000 top prize on a $5 instant scratch ticket. The ticket Campbell scratched off to win the $25,000 prize was one of the Kansas Lottery’s new X-Family of instant games, a $5 game called 20X The Cash.
Campbell purchased his lucky 20X The Cash ticket at Rod’s Shell 3, located at 1717 W. Crawford Street. There are six top prizes of $25,000 remaining in the 20X The Cash, plus hundreds of thousands of other instant cash prizes.
The Kansas Lottery’s X-Family of games, launched in February, includes tickets at five price points: $1, $2, $5, $10 and $20. The X-Family features over 2,000,000 prizes, from a free ticket to $100,000. Altogether, players can win more than $15 million worth of prizes playing the game.
Campbell, who works as an occupational therapy assistant at Smoky Hill Health and Rehabilitation in Salina, plans to use the prize money to pay off his car and credit cards, and to make a dent in his student loans.
