Most of Craig Gretlein’s nights are spent hundreds of feet below ground working the night shift at an underground mine. During the day, though, Craig takes advantage of being above ground and spends a lot of time on a golf course enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.
One day after playing a round of golf, the Linton resident stopped to get something to drink and bought a couple $5 Wild Cherry Crossword 5X Scratch-offs. He likes to play Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs occasionally and especially likes the crossword-type games.
Later that night when he scratched the tickets, he was stunned to see he won the game’s top prize of $100,000. “I was speechless,” said Craig.
He scanned the ticket using the Hoosier Lottery app and then asked a friend to scan it using their phone as well. When Craig finally realized he had indeed won, he couldn’t contain his excitement and told his co-workers about his win. They were all very happy for him.
Craig plans to invest his winnings in a retirement account.
