Hancock County electrician shocked by $1 million win
Electrician Kevin Mars of Shirley, Ind. was just going about his day Thursday when he stumbled into the shock of his life. He had stopped for a bottle of water at a Ricker’s convenience store in Carmel when he purchased a Hoosier Lottery Lucky Millionaire Scratch-off worth $1 million! “My adrenaline was flowing,” said Mars. “I felt euphoric. I thought ‘this isn’t happening.’” But it was happening, and Mars did the smartest thing he could have done. “First thing I did was I flipped it over and signed it,” said Mars. “Once we come down out of the clouds, we’ll figure out what we want to do. We don’t want to jump into anything hastily,” said Mars. “I’m sure my lifestyle isn’t going to change. I’m not going to allow it.” Read more of Kevin's story here.
