Jokes and laughter accompany Lake County lottery win

For the last 14 years Edie Mink of Shelby, Ind., has driven a truck for a vending machine company - and she loves it.  She loves it so much she’s going to keep doing it even after winning $1 million on a Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off.  “I’m going to keep working.  I really like my job!” said Edie. “We’re going to get completely out of debt and pay off everything - the house, the cars, credit cards - everything.” The ticket to Mink’s financial peace of mind was a million-dollar, top-prize winning Hoosier Lottery Black Scratch-off that she purchased at Morocco Smart Shop at 2019 S. U.S. Highway 41 in Morocco. “We’ve had so much fun laughing and joking about what we could do with the money,” said Edie. “There are so many things we can do. It still seems so unreal. This doesn’t happen to people like us!” Two prizes of $1 million are unclaimed at this time on Hoosier Lottery Black, including one that is available through a mylottery second chance promotion.
