Kansas lottery player keeps winning

Kansas LotteryKansas Lottery: Kansas lottery player keeps winning

Louis Guebara has good luck.  In the year 2000, the Topeka resident won two big Kansas Cash jackpots.  He won an $181,000 jackpot in May and a $130,002 jackpot in November.  Now, he can add the title of $20,003 2by2 winner to his list of winnings.

"People ask me 'why I am so lucky?' and I just tell them that Im lucky because I keep on playing," Guebara said.

Guebara, 78, is retired from Santa Fe, which is now Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.  Guebara worked for the railroad for 42 years.  He and his wife, Espernza, have been married for 60 years.
According to Guebara, he plays 2by2 on a regular basis.

He won the $20,000 top prize by matching all four numbers in the Aug. 19, 2004 drawing.  He also matched one number each on three other games on the same ticket to bring his total winnings to $20,003.

"Although I've won the Lottery before, I couldn't believe it when I saw that I won again," Guebara said.  "When the lady at the store checked my ticket and told me that I had won, I thought that she was joking with me.  It took awhile for it all to sink in."

According to Guebara, winning the Lottery helped him do a lot of things.

"I was able to do a lot of things with my winnings," Guebara said.  "I bought a new Oldsmobile and I also gave some money to my niece."

Although Guebara has already won two big jackpots, he enjoys playing lottery games, in hopes of winning again.

"I still want to win the Powerball someday, that is my next big goal," Guebara said.

When Guebara claimed his prize at Lottery headquarters, he still had not told his wife the big news.
"I cant wait to get home and tell my wife about what I won," Guebara said.

Guebara purchased his ticket at Oak Mart, 2518 N.E. Seward, in Topeka.

Too bad Kansas and Nebraska have 2by2 instead of Hot Lotto.

      Does anyone under 30 ever win the lottery?  All these stories are always about people older than 50 and half of them are over 70.  Very frustrating.

        statistics show that most lottery players are over the age of 50.  they also spend the most money.  it makes sense that most winners are over the age of 50.

        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

          I don't have any problem with anyone of any age winning any sized jackpot.  In fact, when someone elderly wins, I kinda feel they earned it by that point.

            That is all PC and stuff but this just speaks then to the point that the more you play the better chance you have at winning.  I am sure a guy like this and the Mass guy who gave away his ticket play hundreds a week.  I am a 28 yr old male and have pounded certain games ($1000) a pop a few times.  I only pound games like the LIttle Lotto in IL or Encore in Ontario,  (odds of million to one or less) I would never pound Mega or Powerball, but I guess a guy like Jack Whittaker does and sooner or later you will win.  I just dont want to have to wait till I am 60!

              What kind of strategy did you use when you played with that kind of money that made you think you had improved you chances to win?

                You want to see the elderly win while they can still enjoy it.

                  Like the Doctor says, older people play more consistantly, just like the majority of lottery wins are quick picks, because they are played more often than hand picked numbers....

                    They probably have fewer things to do.
