Frances Gourley of Indianapolis is retired, but she stays busy babysitting her granddaughter and nieces and nephews. She also likes to play Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs for fun.
Frances typically purchases Scratch-offs at her neighborhood convenience store. One day when she stopped to buy something to drink, Frances also bought a $20 Power 20s Scratch-off. She waited until she got back home to scratch it, and when the ticket showed she won the game’s top prize of $20,000, Frances couldn’t believe her eyes.
She immediately called her daughter and asked her to come over to make sure she was reading the ticket correctly. When her daughter scanned the ticket with the Hoosier Lottery app and the win was confirmed, the two women celebrated.
“I couldn’t sit still,” said Frances. “I still can’t!”
Frances plans to use her winnings to pay bills and take her granddaughter on a shopping spree.
