The Price is Right at Plainfield Dairyland
INDIANAPOLIS – Terry Goins of Plainfield, come on down!
Goins is the latest lucky Hoosier to win a $75,000 top prize on the Hoosier Lottery's The Price is Right scratch-off game. Goins claimed his prize Tuesday at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis.
Goins and his wife drove to Indianapolis to claim their prize in style in the new car that they picked out Monday after Goins scratched his ticket to reveal his winnings. Goins’ wife Tammy had gone to Plainfield Dairyland at 119 East Main Street in Plainfield yesterday to pick up cigarettes. While she was there she also picked up two scratch off tickets and later gave Terry his choice of tickets. He chose The Price is Right ticket.
He chose wisely!
“I thought she bought me a fake ticket,” said Goins. “I couldn’t believe it was real!”
Goins who works in Indianapolis at Steel Supplies Engineering said he has never had a new car and that the winnings came at a really good time because the brakes had completely failed on his car which is in the shop right now.
He also plans to send his grandson to church camp with some of his winnings and pay down debt.
Since 1989, Hoosier Lottery players have won more than $7.6 billion in prizes. The Hoosier Lottery has transferred $3.7 billion to the state for the benefit of the citizens of Indiana.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to please play responsibly.
