SCORCHIN' HOT 9S
Indy man catches an unexpected break
Lupercio Vasquez works two housekeeping jobs. He had just gotten off work at one job and was heading to his second Friday evening when he stopped in Kanti’s Lifestyle, a convenience store at 111 Monument Circle in the Chase Tower, and purchased a Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off. Vasquez scratched the Scorchin’ Hot 9s ticket in the store and was shocked to discover it was a $99,999 winning ticket! Vasquez is originally from Guatemala but has lived in Indianapolis for about three years. The Marion County resident is hoping his win will allow him to cut back to just one full-time job. He and his wife said they are excited to do some shopping for their three young grandchildren. Read more of Lupercio's story here.
