Last year, $30 million of the Lottery revenue was directed to local police and firefighters' pensions.
A retiree from New Albany who has been a regular player of crossword Scratch-offs won big with a $50,000 top prize.
Robert Kaiser has purchased crossword Scratch-offs for years and was cooking dinner with his wife when he realized that his $3 Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler ticket was a winner. His wife was in shock at the win, and carefully went over the ticket to verify the words were correct.
Kaiser plans to invest his winnings, as well as to share some of the prize with his family.
