Indy woman wins $250,000 playing Mega Millions®

Carol Blackwell said she doesn’t play Mega Millions very often, just when the mood strikes her and she’s got spare change or an extra dollar.  As she was getting gas last week at Village Pantry at 2001 Broad Ripple Avenue she decided to try her luck. It was a good choice.  She turned that one dollar into a quarter of a million! “It was a surreal moment,” said Carol, whois trying to keep a level head about her newfound cash. She doesn’t plan to spend any of it. “I’m going to put it in the bank, put it in savings." The only splurge the lucky lady had planned was lunch with her sister after they left Hoosier Lottery offices Friday. “I’ll pick up the tab,” said Carol. Mega Millions drawings are every Tuesday and Friday.
