$100,000 Taxes Paid for Indy Grandma
INDIANAPOLIS – Juanita Finley of Indianapolis
has a secret good luck charm - that is no longer a secret.
"My grandson," said Finley. "He's my good luck charm."
Finley finished work today, stopped at the bank, the gas station and then went to the bus stop to pick up her 9-year-old grandson from school.
"While I was in the store at the gas station I told the gal to give me a five dollar ticket," said Finley. "She told me that this one [$100,000 Taxes Paid] was a game that everyone seemed to like. She handed me one."
The Marion County resident scratched off the ticket in her car, revealing her $100,000 win, before picking up her grandson. After her grandson got in the car, he got to witness Finley's excitement.
"Her eyes got really big!" said Josh, Finley's grandson.
Finley's lucky number is now 13 after matching that number with the top prize on the $100,000 Taxes Paid scratch-off game. She purchased the winning ticket from Speedway #7771 at 4425 S. Emerson in Indianapolis.
"It's all going in the bank," said Finley.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly.
