INDIANAPOLIS – Robert Pervine of Indianapolis
has an extra $200,000
to play with after hitting a top prize on the Hoosier Lottery's Mix & Match
game over the weekend. Pervine claimed his prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis today accompanied by his wife Barbara. "Play" is exactly what Pervine intends to do with his winnings.
"I intend to spend it!" Pervine exclaimed as he claimed his winnings. "I don't care to go out and splurge, but I'm going to spend it."
Pervine went on to explain that although he intends to spend his winnings, he doesn't have any lavish plans, and he plans to use some of his winnings to help family members.
"I've got some trees that need trimmed and a sunroom addition that I still owe a little bit on that I'm gonna pay off," said Pervine. "I'm going to love being debt-free."
"We've been blessed," said Barbara Pervine.
Pervine bought his winning ticket from Silver Express at 8328 West 10th Street in Indianapolis. His lucky ticket matched five numbers on one line in the Friday, June 18 Mix & Match drawing.
