Morning routine leads to big Hoosier Lottery win

Consistency paid off December 13 for a southern Indiana man when the routine with which he starts off his day resulted in big money from a Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off. Every morning, Michael Dayton stops in at the Fast Max Sunoco at 1201 East National Hwy in Washington, Ind., for his lottery tickets and a copy of the Evansville Courier & Press. Monday’s purchase of the $10 Scratch-off Big Winner resulted in Dayton winning the $250,000 top prize! His good fortune will lead to good fortune for others, he said. Dayton said he and his wife Anna plan on doing some good in the world with their prize. “I’m going to pay off a few bills, but mostly Christmas is going to be a lot brighter for some people. I’m going to use the money to help out some of the charitable organizations around town,” he said. To read more of Dayton's story, click here.
