Seeing isn’t believing for Jeffersonville winner’s wife!

Winning the Hoosier Lottery is something that most Hoosiers dream about.  Everybody seems to have a plan for what they would do if it happened to them.  As Jason Derlein of Jeffersonville, knows, it is one thing to dream about it - and it is another thing to actually experience it!

When the IT software developer found himself holding a $100,000 winning Hoosier Lottery ticket recently, he immediately called his wife, but was surprised to find his good fortune was not met with the enthusiasm he had anticipated.

“She was mad.  She said, ‘Stop messing around!  I don’t have time for this, I’m at work,’” said Jason. “I sent her a picture of the ticket and she still didn’t believe me.”

Jason and his wife have been hoping to move up to a bigger home.  He said he plans to use his winnings to boost their budget on a new home and start a college fund for their almost-one-year-old daughter.

“Our baby turns one next week,” said Jason.  “Her party might get a little bigger now.”
