Wichita woman wins $1 million raffle prize

A Wichita woman has won the $1 million prize in the Holiday Millionaire Raffle, Kansas Lottery officials said this afternoon.

Victoria Mason, 50, claimed her prize just before the lottery offices in Topeka closed for the holiday weekend.

Mason told lottery officials that she was laid off from Cessna Aircraft in March. She said she bought the ticket at Bourbon Street Bar and Grill, on Seneca near MacArthur. The bar will be eligible for a $1,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The number for the grand-prize ticket was 030743.

The raffle tickets were $20 each and all 150,000 were sold a little more than a month after going on sale Oct. 18. Mason told lottery officials she bought hers Oct. 19.
