"How about that!" exclaimed Rosaline Pilarski of Cheektowaga when she was notified she is this week's first-prize winner in SUPER JINGO 803 -- a trip for two for seven nights at the HoJo Inn Main Gate in Kissimmee, Fla., plus $500 cash.
"This will be great," said Mrs. Pilarski. "My son, Russell, lives in Florida. My husband, Donald, and I can go visit him and Chelsea, my granddaughter."
How long has she been playing SUPER JINGO?
"Oh my goodness gracious, all the time since it started," Mrs. Pilarski said. "Actually, I won a couple of weeks ago, but that was the first time I ever won."
In SUPER JINGO 797, she won two Buffalo Bills season tickets.
The HoJo Inn Main Gate will be the Pilarskis' headquarters for enjoying all of Orlando's many famous attractions, including Universal Studios, Walt Disney World and Sea World, as well as dining, entertainment and shopping.
Their room includes all the amenities, and they will have access to a full-sized swimming pool, a whirlpool and a modern children's playground.
This trip is courtesy of Travel USA and HoJo and includes round-trip charter air, hotel, car rental, Universal Studios tickets, transfers, tax and service.
Call Travel USA East, West or North for details on the 12th Annual Bills vs. Dolphins four-day excursion.
Other top prize winners in SUPER JINGO Game 803 include:
James McKay of Kenmore -- Two tickets to 10 Buffalo Sabres games.
Cindy Pequeen of the Town of Tonawanda -- A Zenith VCR.
Mary Ellen O'Leary of Youngstown -- A showroom car detail.
The Herman family of Buffalo -- Dinner and show tickets.
"Well, I'll be darned," said McKay when he learned he was second-prize winner of two tickets to 10 Buffalo Sabres games.
"I've been playing for over six years, maybe longer, and have never won. This is my first time.
"Actually, I have Sabres season tickets, but now two more people can enjoy the games."
"Hooray! Isn't that wonderful!" Mrs. Pequeen said of her third prize, a Zenith VCR. "We do have a VCR, but ya never know, these things do break.
"I've been playing SUPER JINGO since it started and have won a couple times. It's been very nice."
"Marvelous. Wonderful," Ms. O'Leary said of her fourth prize, a showroom car detail. "This is wonderful.
"I've been playing since it started and have won once, but that was way back in the beginning. It's actually rather interesting, I mailed them in later than usual, and I had two winning entries, that only happens about once or twice a year."
"Oh, thank you so much," said Jane Herman, when she learned she and her husband, Joseph, won fifth prize of dinner and show tickets for two.
"I've been playing as long as it's been going on. I did win once, but this will be really nice. I have a birthday coming up, so that will be very nice," she said.
Remember, it is not necessary to write or phone The Buffalo News if you are one of the other 45 winners. Prizes will soon be mailed to you.
