A Muncie woman plans to pay off her student loans after turning $3 into $50,000, thanks to a Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off. Jennifer Reichert claimed her $50,000 prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis on April 30.
The mother of three says being debt-free will be wonderful, having won the Wild Cherry Crossword Tripler Scratch-off, which she says is her favorite game.
Reichert purchased her winning ticket at P and J Food Mart in Muncie.
Since its inception in 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has produced $4 billion in net income for the citizens of Indiana, nearly $1 billion in commissions and bonuses for participating Indiana retailers, and has paid out $8.5 billion in player prizes.
The Hoosier Lotto jackpot is up to $1 million, and the Powerball’s estimated jackpot is up to $60 million. The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly and always sign the back of their tickets.
