Princeton couple nabs top prize on Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler

When Bonita Johnson and her husband Steve made the trek north to Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis from Princeton, Ind., she still wasn’t quite sure to believe the Scratch-off ticket she held in her hand was worth as much as they’d hoped.  A quick check by Hoosier Lottery Prize Payment officials of the $3 Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler was enough to let them both know the trip was well worth their time. The Johnsons won the top prize of $50,000 on a Scratch-off that Steve purchased a few days prior from the local Fastbreak convenience store located at 1702 West Broadway in Princeton. “With the exception of a small amount held aside for our kids,” said Bonita Johnson, “it will all be invested for our future.” To read more about Bonita and Steve's story, click here.
