Christmas gift from Ellsworth man leads to $25,000 top lottery prize

Jessica Neeland with her Lottery check.

Special to the I-R

Every year for Christmas, Jessica Neeland receives a variety of Kansas Lottery instant scratch tickets from her grandfather Larry Pacey.  This year, one of the instant tickets she received was a $5 20X The Cash ticket.  After scratching the ticket, the 27-year-old Radium resident was shocked to discover she had won a $25,000 top prize playing the game!

"For as long as I can remember, my grandpa has bought lottery tickets for everyone at Christmas," said Neeland.  "It's something my family looks forward to and enjoys every year.  It's always been one of my favorite things about Christmas."

Before scratching her tickets this year, Neeland said she and her husband Robert were joking about winning and what they would do with their winnings if they did win, never expecting it to actually come true moments later.
