Natasha S., a certified nursing assistant from Shelburn, IN, enjoys playing the Hoosier Lottery as a fun way to pass the time. She enjoys buying Scratch-offs that catch her eye when she goes to the gas station. She bought her $5 Joker’s Wild Scratch-off because it was the newest $5 ticket, and she thought it looked like a fun game to play. She was sitting in her driveway when she got home from work one day and decided to scratch her $5 Joker’s Wild ticket. As she saw the numbers match up with the winning numbers, she froze because she was so surprised when she realized she had won a $100,000 top prize. She went inside and told her husband, who was sure she was playing a trick on him. After scanning the ticket with his Hoosier Lottery app to double check the prize, he was as excited as Natasha. With the prize money, Natasha plans to pay off their house. Congratulations Natasha!
