Persistence pays off for Michigan City grandmother

You might say Janet Dolson is a creature of habit. She has been playing the numbers 2-11-16-20-28 in the Hoosier Lottery’s Lucky 5 game faithfully for 10 years. That persistence paid off for the Michigan City grandmother when her lucky numbers won her $50,000 in the July 14 drawing. Dolson’s numbers represent a combination of the birthdates of her children and grandchildren. She buys her tickets faithfully every Friday morning at the Lucky Stop at 1912 Franklin Street in Michigan City. She also wisely buys multi-draw tickets for seven draws at a time, so she doesn’t risk forgetting to play her numbers. Read more of Janet's story here.
