Milan store sells $50,000 Lucky 5 winner
INDIANAPOLIS – A Guilford, Ind. man won $50,000 on a Lucky 5 ticket he purchased at Jay C Food Store on St. Rd. 101 North in Milan.
Zane McCroskey was visiting his father in Milan last week when he stopped and bought a Lucky 5 ticket that turned out to be worth $50,000 in the February 17 midday draw. McCroskey’s Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers drawn: 6-11-14-29-36.
McCroskey presented his winning ticket and claimed his $50,000 prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters February 18.
The Dearborn County resident and construction worker said he has no shortage of things to spend his winnings on with four children age 10 and younger.
“It’s all about them!” said McCroskey with a smile.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly, and to always sign the back of their tickets.
As with all Hoosier Lottery games, the net income generated from sales of Lucky 5 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.
