Weekend routine interrupted by $50,000 win
An early morning breakfast for one Indianapolis couple went from routine to out-of-the ordinary while doing a weekly check of their draw game tickets this past weekend. While checking numbers in the Saturday morning paper, the Odom’s discovered they would soon be collecting a little extra pocket change. Manuel Odom of Indianapolis plays Hoosier Lotto, Powerball, and Daily 4 twice a week and has for years. Friday afternoon, Odom purchased his usual set of tickets from the Marathon gas station located at 2160 S. Meridian Street and matched all four numbers straight. The top prize on Daily 4 is $5,000, but because Odom played the same numbers ten times, he turned what would have been a $5000 win into a $50,000 windfall.
