Lincoln Shaw works as an auto mechanic in Shelbyville, Ind. He has been a Hoosier Lottery player since it began in 1989. He enjoys playing Scratch-offs because those were the first lottery games he started playing. He chooses which Scratch-off to play based on the top prize amounts.
Though no stranger to winning after collecting $25,000 from a Scratch-off in August 2021, $500,000 is by far the largest prize Lincoln has won. He always scratches his tickets in his car outside of where he buys his Scratch-off. When he realized he had won a $500,000 top prize playing a $20 Money Multiplier Scratch-off, he ran into the Circle K to tell the cashier, who he knows well. “Do you see the same thing that I see?” The cashier looked at his ticket and confirmed that he was a winner.
Lincoln plans to buy a car with the prize money now that his Honda has hit 400k miles – a testament to his mechanic skills. He then plans to invest the rest into a retirement fund so that he can free up more time for fishing in the future.
$20 Money Multiplier Estimated Overall Odds: 1 in 4.63.
