Published: October 21, 2008 | 7250th good news item since 2003

Samantha and Matthew Hunt are about to have their third child. So when Matthew bought a lottery ticket yesterday and scratched it for to win $10,000, they couldn’t be happier.

“We’re expecting our third child in April. So this money will help us a lot with baby expenses and Christmas.

Our four-year-old knows something exciting is going on because she gets to go pick out a toy.”

Matthew works at Wal-Mart in Wichita and plays the lottery every other week in two ways: he buys $20 company stock and $10 scratch tickets.

“It took me awhile to get something really big – just keep trying.

Last Thursday, I bought two $2 Lucky Lines tickets and three $2 Bonus Crosswords.

On the very first ticket I scratched, one of the Lucky Lines, I won $10,000.

I had a guy rubbing my head at work yesterday; trying to find some luck to help him win the Powerball.”

Apart from the upcoming baby the Hunts have two daughters: a 4 year old and a 1 year old.
