$100,000 Brightens Hagerstown Woman’s Bad Day

Karen Rhodus’ morning was crazy and hectic with changed plans and rearranged schedules. Rhodus works in home healthcare and is also in the process of selling her house. When a last minute work schedule change and an unexpected house showing came into play that morning, she found herself at a fast food restaurant near the One and 70 Shell station, where she ended up buying, and winning, the last top prize on the Hoosier Lottery scratch-off $100 Grand Double Play®. Rhodus was so excited she handed the clerk a $100 bill before she even claimed her winnings at the Hoosier Lottery Headquarters. Although there are no exotic travel plans in her future, Rhodus is still extremely excited at the thought of being debt free and helping her parents with some home improvement projects. “My main priority is bills,” said Rhodus. “I won’t have to worry for awhile.” Click here to see more of the Hoosier Lottery’s recent winners.
