Erica Harrell lives in the tiny town of Odon, about 45 minutes southwest of Bloomington. She has worked at a deli in Odon for over 8 years and enjoys playing Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs for fun.
She usually purchases Scratch-offs at the local Casey’s and was sitting in their parking lot scratching a $30 Mega Money she had just bought when she got the shock of her life. She had just won $100,000! She immediately went back into Casey’s and asked the clerk to scan the ticket to make sure it really was a winner. When the clerk confirmed the win, Erica was ecstatic.
Excited to share her news, Erica told her husband about her win, and he was stunned. He kept asking her, “Are you sure?” He then insisted that they call the Hoosier Lottery office to make sure the ticket really was a winner. When the Lottery office confirmed that she had indeed won $100,000, Erica screamed with joy.
The news about Erica’s win quickly spread throughout the small town, and when Erica went to work the next day, her co-workers congratulated her and were very happy for her.
Erica plans to put the prize money toward a new home.
