Tyler Smith works as a handyman doing flooring, tiling and landscaping. He likes to play Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs for the fun they provide.
Sitting in the parking lot of the Viking Express, Tyler scratched the $30 Extreme Cash Scratch-off he just purchased. He knew that he had won but was expecting to reveal a small prize. However, when he scratched the prize amount area, he saw that he won the top prize of $50,000!
“I set the ticket down and thought I was going to have a heart attack,” Tyler remembers about the moment he won.
Tyler called his wife to tell her that he’d won. She told him that she was hoping he won at least $1,000 and was stunned to learn Tyler had won $50,000.
Tyler plans to purchase two new vehicles with the prize money. He also plans to pay his rent in advance for the year with the winnings.
