Chesterton Man is Lucky for Life

Scott Hamilton was joyfol and teary-eyed as he scratched to reveal $1,000 a week for life on the new Hoosier Lottery scratch-off Lucky for Life. "I couldn't say anything on the way down here," said Hamilton. "I kept thinking 'What if it isn't real or the ticket isn't a winner'". After selecting a few scratch-offs at Zips Food, Hamilton let the clerk, Linda, pick his last one. She chose Lucky for Life. Hamilton returned to his car to scratch, and upon revealing the "LIFE" symbol, he ran back into the store screaming to show Linda. "We were both jumping up and down screaming," he said.

He also plans to buy a new car. "I love the Hoosier Lottery!" exclaimed Hamilton. Click here to read more.
