WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wichita couple has claimed the $1,000,000 top prize for the 2017 Holiday Millionaire Raffle. The lucky winners, who wished to remain anonymous, didn’t check their raffle tickets until Saturday, January 6!

“When the clerk scanned the ticket, she asked me to step behind the counter to look at the screen. I thought something was wrong, it never crossed my mind that I maybe won something big!” said the winner.

The couple says they plan to put the majority of the winnings towards strengthening their future financial security. They’re also going to use some of the winnings towards their daughter’s upcoming wedding, and for some family fun time.

Lucky ticket number 071931 was sold at Kwik Shop 790, at 3750 North Maize Road.

There are still 26 big prizes unclaimed in the 2017 Holiday Millionaire Raffle, including two $100,000 prizes and two $25,000 prizes.
