The Hoosier Lottery has announced the winners of the Grand Prize “My Lottery” holiday giveaway promotion, and one of the winners is from Knox.
The second chance promotion began in October of 2015 as a way to pick winners entering the contest. Six drawings chose 255 winners. Only 50 players won $500 in the drawings taking place between November and February.
That changed though during the March 3rd Grand Prize Drawing where five winners were selected for a $100-thousand prize.
According to information provided by Lottery officials, Bonnie Lang of Knox was among the winners. Lang was in Arizona traveling to California to visit family when she received the call informing her of her winnings.
The lottery allows five days to present their non-winning entry ticket to Hoosier Lottery officials to claim the prize. Lang and her husband made a quick visit with family, but returned to Indiana to make the claim.
Other winners were from Boonville, Crown Point, Peru, and Vincennes.
