Plainfield man hits Hoosier Lottery CA$H 5 jackpot
INDIANAPOLIS (July 17, 2018) — A Plainfield man is taking his love of CA$H 5 to the bank.
Robert H. has been playing CA$H 5 every day for three months. The daily draw game from the Hoosier Lottery has a starting jackpot of $75,000 and grows each drawing until someone hits the jackpot.
That CA$H 5 jackpot grew to an estimated $765,500 when Robert H. purchased the winning ticket for the July 9, 2018 drawing. The actual jackpot he claimed was $768,098 before taxes.
“I get it every day. I just think the game is cool,” Robert said, adding he enjoys that the jackpot grows each day.
Robert bought the winning ticket at Double S Food Mart, 8009 W. Washington St., Indianapolis. It’s where he buys all of his CA$H 5 tickets. After the owner found out his store sold the winning ticket, he quickly suspected Robert was the winner.
“You hit yesterday, didn’t you?” the owner asked him when he walked into the store the day after the drawing.
Robert was in a state of disbelief when he checked his CA$H 5 ticket’s numbers.
“I checked them, and I just was lost,” he said. “I think I checked it 70 times.”
The first person Robert told about the big win was a banker. He plans to save it all.
“It’s just going to sit in the bank,” he said. “This is our nest egg.”
Tonight is the next CA$H 5 drawing, with an estimated jackpot of $110,000.
CA$H 5 Overall Odds are 1 in 11.
