MILLION DOLLAR HOLIDAY
Fort Wayne man wins $1 million, his third major Christmas time lottery win in a dozen years!
Roger Douglas just won his third major Hoosier Lottery prize. The lucky Allen County man claimed a $1 million prize on the Hoosier Lottery's new Million Dollar Holiday Scratch-off at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis Thursday.
It wasn't Roger's first trip to the Hoosier Lottery claims office, or his first major Scratch-off win or even his first win on a Christmas-themed lottery game. It wasn't even his second time doing all these things. With his $1 million win, Roger has now won three significant prizes on a Hoosier Lottery holiday game.
In November 2001 Roger scored $250,000 on a Hoosier Lottery Polar Express Scratch-off and on Nov. 21, 2006 (seven years ago to the day of his most recent win) he won $25,000 on a Hoosier Lottery holiday raffle game.
"The odds are so against winning in the first place, I never thought it would happen again," said Roger. "I thought $250,000 win was once-in-a-lifetime. I feel well-blessed." Roger and his wife are parents to seven adopted sons. Click here to read more of their story.
