Whiting winner keeping $150,000 scratch-off win in perspective
Perspective is a good thing, especially when you find yourself holding a winning Hoosier Lottery scratch-off ticket worth $150,000. Whiting’s Ralph Maginot, who found himself in that exact spot on Sunday, is unfazed by his good fortune. Admittedly, he was initially surprised to see the $150,000 prize appear on the $5 Cashta$tic Scratch-off he bought at Luke’s at 3550 Sheffield Avenue in Hammond. But, then he went to dinner as planned, went to work and came down to Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis to claim his prize – accompanied by his “better half” of 14 years, Lynn Robertson. “We’re very blessed with our friends and our families, and you don’t ever think something like this is going to happen to you,” said Lynn. “But, I’ve seen (Ralph) give to people who needed help when he didn’t have much to give, so if anyone deserves it, it’s him.” Click here to read more and find out how Ralph plans to spend his winnings.
