He loaded up his dog and drove across town from his home to try his luck. “I had never done the Cash Cube and I came out with 25 tickets,” he said. “When it shut off, they came down and I grabbed them.”

Eickmeier said that the prize money will help fund the kitchen remodel he is working on with his wife.
