Game Name: POWERBALLPurchased-city: FISHERSGame Won: 1/14/2021Amount Won: $100,000Hoosier one number away from taking home the Powerball® jackpot; celebrates $100,000
Zachary Dunn purchased a Powerball® ticket at Big Red Liquors in Fishers, Ind., for the Wednesday, January 13, 2021 Powerball draw - which at the time was an estimated $550 million. Upon scanning the ticket with the Hoosier Lottery app, not even Zachary thought it would come back with so many zeros! “There were so many zeros I had to scan it again!” said Zachary. He matched 4-of-5 numbers and the Powerball number resulting in a $50,000 win, which instantly turned into $100,000 because he purchased the Power Play option for an additional $1. Zachary enjoys playing Hoosier Lottery games for entertainment value. He prefers Draw games and plays Daily 3 and Daily 4 every day. Earlier in January, Zachary won $500 playing Daily 3 (on Tuesday, January 12) as a precursor to his big win on Powerball. When playing Zachary loves using numbers important to the family so he chooses birthdays, anniversaries, and addresses; although, for Powerball he generally chooses a Quick Pick and always plays Power Play.
Zachary moved from Ohio to Indiana at the end of 2019 for his job as a truck driver. Soon after moving the pandemic struck and shut everything down. His job has become busier than ever working 70-plus hours per week. Even with a big lottery win and a great start to 2021, Zachary plans to continue serving Hoosiers across the state delivering goods where needed.
He will continue playing his numbers daily and keep his eye on the big jackpots that Powerball and Mega Millions offer. Being loyal, he will continue to play at his hometown store, Big Red Liquors in Fishers.
