On Valentine’s Day, a Lowell, Ind., man traveled to the Speedway at 2101 E Commercial Ave. in Lowell to purchase five CA$H 5 quick picks.
On Monday morning, this Hoosier woke up to quite the surprise. “Like always, I woke up and checked my numbers the morning after the draw; I had no idea what I was about to read,” he said, recalling the win. The numbers in front of him read: 1-6-18-19-42. He was shocked at what he saw. “When I saw that I matched four of the numbers I was so excited with the thought of winning $200, that I didn’t realize that I matched the last number,” he recalled. Upon realizing that he matched the fifth number, he couldn’t believe his eyes. “I ran into my bedroom and had to wake up my wife so she could read the numbers to me,” he said. “It was kind of funny, as soon as she read them off, she rolled over and went back to bed without knowing what was on the ticket!”
The jackpot winner is very excited to use the money to pay off his house and have a comfortable retirement.
