TOPEKA, Kansas – The holder of Holiday Millionaire Raffle ticket 14333 stepped forward Wednesday to claim her $1 million prize. The Bel Aire resident, who asked the Lottery to keep her identity a secret, purchased just one ticket.
When the drawing was held on December 31, it was ticket number 14333 that won the grand prize of $1 million.
The excited winner and her family told Lottery officials they had intended to claim the prize earlier this month, but wintery weather and problems with a car tire kept them from making the trip to Topeka. While waiting to claim the $1 million ticket, the winner said she kept it in a secret place not even her family knew.
The $1 million Holiday Millionaire Raffle ticket was sold at Jumpstart 2, located at 701 N. Main St. in El Dorado. For selling the winning ticket, the store becomes eligible for a $1,000 selling bonus.
