Rossville woman wins $100,000 at Lafayette Meijer
Elizabeth Slabaugh of Rossville was shopping for a Father’s Day card at Meijer at 4901 State Road 26 E when she decided on a whim to buy a couple Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs from the vending machine. One of those tickets turned out to be a $100,000 winning ticket. It was one of six top prizes offered on the $5 Cash Bonus Scratch-off. As Slabaugh claimed her prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis Friday, she confessed that she hadn’t intended to purchase the ticket that made her a big winner. “After I put my money in the machine I realized the ticket I wanted was out. I had to choose another one, so I got Cash Bonus instead,” said Slabaugh. “There was a guy in line behind me, too. Another five minutes and he might have got it.” Read more of Elizabeth's story here.
