Toothache prompts $150,000 Hoosier Lottery win
On Tuesday, after a few days of suffering from a throbbing toothache, Jackie Gibson of Mishawaka finally gave in and went to the dentist. She’s glad she did. Not only did the dentist give her a prescription to ease her toothache, but filling that prescription put Jackie in the right place at the right time to buy a top prize-winning Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off.
While waiting for her prescription to be filled at the Meijer pharmacy at 5020 Grape Road in Mishawaka, Jackie purchased a $5 Cashta$tic ticket out of the vending machine that was worth $150,000.
The lucky grandmother plans to use her winnings for more dental work. She is also thrilled for the opportunity to help her family and sleep well at night knowing she has savings to rely on. “I’m a faithful Lottery player. I always figured that what goes around will come around,” said Jackie. “Thank you, Hoosier Lottery!” Click here to read more of Jackie's story, including how she nearly overlooked her good fortune!
