Rochester man wins $77,777 Hoosier Lottery prize

Monday morning tends to arrive too soon for many people, but not for Larry and Barbara Rentschler of Rochester.  Larry purchased a $77,777 top-prize winning Metal 7s Scratch-off on his way home from work Friday evening. The couple had to wait until the Hoosier Lottery prize payment office in Indianapolis opened Monday morning to claim their prize. That meant holding on to the winning ticket all weekend, which meant that Monday morning couldn’t come quick enough for the couple. “I was so nervous, I was sick to my stomach,” said Barbara Rentschler. As  they claimed their winnings, Larry Rentschler confessed that he wasn’t exactly surprised by his big win.  “I’ve told people for years I was going to win someday,” said Rentschler.
