Winning means retirement for $24 million winners
Retiring is at the top of the list of things an Indianapolis couple plan to do now that they have won a $24 million Hoosier Lotto jackpot. Tom and Gail Fox of Indianapolis were shocked to discover they had won a multi-million jackpot in the June 22 Hoosier Lotto drawing. Tom is employed at a feeder assembly facility in Fortville and Gail works for Honda in Greensburg. They have been married four years and both are thrilled to be able to jump-start the retirement process. $24 million gives them more than enough to get their ducks in a row and enjoy their golden years. Call it foreshadowing. Just hours before the couple won, Gail joked with a friend in the breakroom at work about winning the Lottery and retiring. “He said he was going to win the Lottery and I told him he wasn’t because I was going to win,” said Gail Fox. “I wonder if he figured it out when I wasn’t at work yesterday.” The couple elected to take payment of the $24 million as a 30-year annuity and will receive $800,000 annually for thirty years, before taxes.
