SCORCHIN' HOT 9S
Happy accident results in $99,999 win
Talk about serendipity! A Speedway woman’s recent mistake ended up netting her some serious cash. Fannie Watkins accidentally asked for the “wrong” Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off at a westside Sunoco. She never intended to purchase a Scorchin’ Hot 9s ticket. She thought she was buying a different ticket, but when the clerk handed her a Scorchin’ Hot 9s she decided to go ahead and buy it instead. That happy accident was worth a lot, because the ticket she accidentally requested was a $99,999 winner! “I never meant to buy this one,” said Watkins. “I meant to buy another ticket. I really didn’t believe it.” Read more of Fannie's story here.
