Indiana Store Sells 2 Lottery Tickets Worth $1M each
With more than 4,000 retailers of the scratch-off and online games, Hoosier Lottery officials said, it is pretty rare, if not unique, for lightning to strike twice at the same place -- the Plainfield Dairyland on Main Street -- in such a short time.
Lottery officials confirmed Tuesday that a $1 million jackpot ticket sold at the store matched the winning six numbers drawn Saturday in the Hoosier Lotto online game. The numbers were: 2, 14, 31, 32, 35 and 48.
That Hoosier Lotto ticket probably was sold Thursday, Friday or Saturday. The winner has not yet claimed the prize.
The second million-dollar winner at Dairyland for the weekend was a Cash Blizzard scratch-off ticket sold Saturday.
John Hensley, 30, and fiancee Vanessa Mitchell, 28, already have been to the lottery headquarters in Indianapolis to claim the prize, an after-tax payout of $36,000 per year for 20 years.
