DOUBLE PLATINUM 20X
Lottery winner excited to be mortgage-free
Jim Latta of Brazil, Ind., quenched more than his thirst when he stopped for a Diet Pepsi at a Rockville retailer recently. The lucky man bought a soda and a $5 Double Platinum 20X Scratch-off worth $120,000. “This
makes retirement a reality,” said Latta. “I didn’t want to retire while I still have a mortgage to pay. I can pay
it all off now. It’s going to be great!” Latta is an industrial technology teacher. While he doesn’t have immediate plans to retire, he is excited to be able to make concrete plans toward that goal. Read more of Jim's story here.
