Shaking and yelling, Kelly C. stood in the Village Pantry in Morristown, Indiana, speaking with her husband on the phone.
“I’m pretty sure I just won $100,000!” Kelly yelled into the phone.
And “pretty sure” turned into reality a couple days later when Kelly claimed her $100,000 top prize from a five-dollar $25 Million Prize Pool Scratch-off at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.
“It (took) about a day and half for it to soak in,” Kelly said while claiming her prize. “This is really real. This really happened.”
Kelly plans to pay off her car and take her family on vacation.
“It’s going to make my life a lot more comfortable,” she said.
Kelly, from Fountaintown, Indiana, purchased the winning ticket at Village Pantry, 189 W. Highway 52 in Morristown.
As of Sept. 12, three top prizes of $100,000 remain for five-dollar $25 Million Dollar Prize Pool.
The five-dollar $25 Million Dollar Prize Pool estimated overall odds are 1 in 3.96.
