Sweet craving prompts $120,000 win at Noblesville Meijer store

An Indianapolis man’s sweet craving prompted a sweet Hoosier Lottery win last week. Russell Mulholland was on his way home from Anderson on Wednesday when he began craving something sweet. After almost talking himself out of giving in to his sweet tooth, Russell stopped at the Meijer store at 17000 Mercantile Blvd. in Noblesville, picked up a packet of little pound cakes and two Hoosier Lottery Scratch-offs. It was the best purchase he’s made in a long time, because one of those Scratch-offs, $5 Double Platinum 20X, was a $120,000 winning ticket. Russell is a retired Navy man and Vietnam veteran who spent a lot of his military time in the Caribbean. With some extra cash burning a hole in his pocket, he now plans to go back to Puerto Rico for a vacation this winter. He also plans to help his daughter as she gets her master’s degree in Florida. Sweet deal, Russell! Read more of Russell's story here.
