"Happy Holidays" has new meaning for Chicago man

For Chicago’s Pedro Nunez, “Happy Holidays” has a whole new meaning after winning $75,000 on a Hoosier Lottery scratch-off ticket.

Nunez, who routinely buys his lottery tickets at Delock’s at 7 Gostlin Street in Hammond, stopped by there just before Christmas and decided to play The Price Is Right® Scratch-off from the Hoosier Lottery. Standing there at the store counter, Nunez watched in disbelief as he scratched the ticket and realized he was holding a top-prize winning ticket.

“My legs turned to gum and my eyes filled with tears,” said Nunez. “I couldn’t believe it.”

The former heavy machine operator has no immediate plans for the money, beyond helping his mother.
