Terre Haute woman wins $50k from Scratch-off
INDIANAPOLIS – A Terre Haute resident turned $3 into $50,000 Tuesday after purchasing a Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off.
Esther Ligget, a doctor’s office employee and mother of four, bought her winning Wild Cherry Crossword from the Speedway at 3388 South US Hwy 41 in Terre Haute December 21. She was so excited by her win she didn’t even wait to show her husband David the ticket before traveling to Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis to redeem it.
“I called him and told him, but he doesn’t believe it. He still hasn’t seen the ticket,” she said. “He is going to go nuts – in a good way!”
Ligget said her prize will mean a few extra presents under the tree, and maybe a kitchen remodel – after she talks to her husband, of course.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly, and to always sign the back of their tickets.
