Churubusco man “pumped up” over Hoosier Lottery win
INDIANAPOLIS – Ralph Killworth Jr. of Churubusco is over the moon about winning $200,000 in Friday night’s Mix & Match drawing. The Whitley County man could barely contain himself as he claimed his winnings at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters Monday morning.
“I’m so pumped up!” said Killworth. “I’m elated! This is a blessing. I feel like there’s a light shining down on me from above.”
Killworth purchased his winning ticket at Busco Pride at 108 South Main Street in Churubusco. His lucky ticket matched five numbers in one line to win $200,000 in the January 7 Mix & Match drawing. The winning numbers were: 6-23-34-41-43.
Killworth worked for Dana Corporation until medical issues forced him to retire about a year ago. He plans to take a vacation to Myrtle Beach with his winnings, but said he is most grateful for the peace of mind this extra money will afford him since he is on a fixed income.
“Thank you Hoosier Lottery! Thank you so much. I can’t say how much I appreciate it!” said Killworth. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
As with all Hoosier Lottery games, the net income generated from sales of Mix & Match is turned over to the state. Last year, the Hoosier Lottery transferred $190 million to the state where it was allocated to teachers, police and firefighters retirement funds as well as the Build Indiana Fund which ultimately reduces Hoosiers’ license plate costs.
Players have 180 days to claim prizes on Hoosier Lottery draw games. The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly.
