Fort Wayne nurse cashes in on FREE Cash 5 ticket
An Allen County nurse has laid claim to a Hoosier Lottery Cash 5 jackpot worth $52,500, by way of a free promotional ticket.
Nancy Harman of Fort Wayne is the second Hoosier to win a jackpot on the new rolling jackpot game – and she did it on a free ticket. On Nov. 17 Nancy purchased a Powerball ticket at Speedway at 6033 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Fort Wayne, and thanks to a Hoosier Lottery promotion, she randomly received a coupon for a free Cash 5 ticket, which she redeemed immediately.
Nancy put the free Cash 5 ticket in her purse and didn’t think about it again until she went to check her Powerball ticket a few days later. She was shocked to discover she had won the Cash 5 jackpot of $52,500! Read more of Nancy's story here.
