Twice as Nice: Salina Man Wins 2 Lottery Promotions

A Salina man has won a couple of  grand prizes, in two unrelated Kansas Lottery promotions. According to the lottery Robert Tripp was one of eight players who have each won access to a Kansas City Royals suite during a 2016 home game at Kauffman Stadium. The eight grand prize winners were drawn this week in the first of two Kansas City Royals online-only second-chance drawings.  The eight lucky winners are:

  1. Carla Tabares of Chanute

  3. Robert Tripp of Salina
  4. Jennifer Ngo of Wichita
  5. Thomas Honton of Wichita
  6. Bryan John of Leavenworth
  7. Mike Courson of Great Bend
  8. Andrew Hull of Rose Hill

The grand prizes are for the September 3 Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers game.  Each prize package includes access to the Kansas City Royals Dugout Suite at Kauffman Stadium for each winner and a guest, which includes food, beverages and parking, plus a hotel room for two for one night, two $50 stadium gift cards and $200 spending money.  Each prize package is valued at $2,100.  There were 23,081 entries in the first drawing.

Tripp, and another man from Salina, were also winners in another unrelated promotion. According to the lottery five players have each won a $300 Sears gift card and a $200 Omaha Steaks gift card in the first of four online-only second-chance drawings.  The lucky winners were drawn this week in the Kansas Lottery’s Grills Gone Wild Collect ‘N Win promotion.  The five winners are:
