man gets much more than coffee!!
John Billman of Osgood stopped at the Osgood Food Mart on Saturday,
March 12 for coffee and a scratch-off ticket. He quickly turned
five-dollars into $130,000 when he revealed the winnings of his
Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off. He won a top prize on a Triple the
Money scratch-off ticket.
What will he do with the money?
The Billmans said with three children in college, they wont
be making any frivolous purchases with the winnings. It
will help a lot, Billman said. He said the whole experience
was pretty neat.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to sign the back of their
tickets and to please play responsibly.
As with all Hoosier Lottery games, the net income generated from
the sale of Scratch-offs in Indiana is turned over to the state.
Last year, the Hoosier Lottery transferred $190 million to the
state where it was allocated to teachers, police and firefighters
retirement funds as well as the Build Indiana Fund which ultimately
reduces Hoosiers license plate costs.

check showing his big winnings of $130,000.
