Lucky Russell Player Wins Grasshopper Mower in Lottery Drawing

James Noel Wins Mower 1A Kansas Lottery player from Russell has everything he needs to keep the yard in tip top shape and then some.

James Noel is the grand prize winner in the Kansas Lottery's Hot Hopper Sizzler drawing held July 12 at the 3i Show in Dodge City.

Noel, like other players, became eligible for the drawing by purchasing a Hot Lotto Sizzler ticket and submitting the entry forms they received with their ticket purchases.

The Hot Hopper Sizzler grand prize includes a Grasshopper zero turn mower with a dozer blade attachment, plus a chainsaw, leaf blower, lawn trimmer and safety glasses. With the Lottery paying the mandatory income withholding taxes, the total value of the grand prize is approximately $18,800.

Kansas Lottery Director of Public Affairs Sally Lunsford, along with other Lottery representatives, presented the mower and prizes to Noel Thursday at his residence. Noel is pictured here with his family receiving the prizes.

Noel said he had been praying for a new mower and he might now offer to mow the nearby Church of Christ's lawn.
