Adan LopezINDIANAPOLIS – A Tyson Foods employee in Logansport who recently had his hours cut due a fire at the food processing plant has won $1 million from the Hoosier Lottery.
 
Adan Lopez of Logansport claimed a $1 million scratch-off prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis today.
 
The Cass County man purchased his lucky Hoosier Millions scratch-off ticket on a whim while buying groceries last week. He was still standing in the store when he scratched the ticket and revealed a $1 million prize.   
 
Lopez kept his cool and calmly showed the ticket to his girlfriend who he was grocery shopping with.
 
"He said he didn't want to have a heart attack.  He wanted to keep it under control," said Lopez's girlfriend Janice Long.
 
He managed to keep it under control for a week before claiming his prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters.
 
Originally from Mexico, Lopez moved to Logansport from Illinois ten years ago.  He says he doesn't have any grand plans for the winnings, but is looking forward to traveling and helping his family.
 
Lopez purchased his ticket at Martin's Supermarket at  3420 E. Market St. in Logansport
 
He is the third lucky player to win a $1 million top prize on the Hoosier Millions scratch-off game. One top prize of $1 million remains unclaimed on the Hoosier Millions game at this time. The prize will be paid as an annuity over 20 years.
 
"Thank you very much to the Hoosier Lottery,"  said Lopez.
