Terre Haute woman wins $50k from Scratch-off

Esther Ligget, of Terre Haute, turned a $3 purchase into $50,000 when she won one of the top prizes on Wild Cherry Crossword, a Scratch-off from the Hoosier Lottery. 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!” To read more about Esther's story, click here.
