$94,500 Hoosier Lottery win delivers career opportunity for Whiteland man
A Whiteland man plans to use a Hoosier Lottery win to make a big life change. Roger Figg hopes to use his $94,500 Cash 5 winnings to transition to a new career.
"This couldn't come at a better time," said Figg, who claimed his winnings at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters July 2. "I want to go back to school to become a veterinary assistant or a dog groomer. This will give me the opportunity to pursue that."
Figg's good fortune arrived by way of a Cash 5 win. The five numbers on his Cash 5 ticket matched all five numbers drawn in the July 1 drawing. The winning numbers were: 1 - 11 - 12 - 21 - 31.
Figg is a regular Cash 5 player and always plays numbers of his own choosing. His win was somewhat of a shock to him because it happened after he had taken a brief hiatus from playing.
"I stopped playing Cash 5 for about three weeks after the big jackpot hit a while back," said Figg. "It was kind of like fate because I had stopped playing and had just started again when I won." Read more of Roger's plans for his windfall here.
