Richmond Woman Reveals a $50,000 Crossword

Krista Black claimed a $50,000 top prize on the Hoosier Lottery scratch-off $50,000 Crossword. Black had purchased 3 of her favorite scratch-offs and saved the $50,000 Crossword for last. “I thought I had matched nine words and won $1,000. When my husband looked at it, he figured out I had matched all 10! I was so excited,” said Black. The couple plans to use the money to help their daughter pay off her student loans. “She graduated in 2002, so this will be a big relief.” The rest of the money will be for the monthly bills so the couple can live a little easier.
