Earl Williamson of Lafayette is enjoying retirement after being a self-employed appliance repairman for decades. For fun, Earl occasionally purchases Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs.
He stopped at the gas station one afternoon and purchased two $5 Bonus Money Scratch-offs.
Later that day, Earl was at home and pulled out the tickets to see whether he won. As he scratched one of them, he was happy to see he won $100. But as he continued scratching, he started to see some more zeroes.
"Come here and look at this," Earl yelled to his wife. As the two of them examined the ticket, they were shocked to realize Earl had just won the game's top prize of $100,000!
Earl plans to use his winnings to pay a couple of bills and will share some with his children.
