Press release from the Hoosier Lottery
(Indianapolis, Ind.) -A Dillsboro man and his wife are the latest Hoosiers to win big money in the Hoosier Lottery. John and Lisa Sladeck claimed a $150,000 prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters this afternoon after scratching off a top prize on theCash Multiplier X10 Scratch-off game.
John Sladeck is a retired teacher and Lisa works as an event planner. The couple said their one indulgence is the Hoosier Lottery. They enjoy sitting down together to play Scratch-offs.
"We play as a team," said John Saldeck. "We like to stay home. We don't go out or spend a lot of money. This is our big pastime. We enjoy it."
John purchased their lucky ticket atJ & J Liquors at13195 Bank Street inDillsboro. It's the same place he buys most of their tickets - and the same place he bought aLucky 5 ticket that won him $50,000 in 2008.
"We almost always buy our tickets there," said John Sladeck. "And we certainly will from now on!"
"Thank you Hoosier Lottery!" said Lisa Sladeck.
The Sladecks are the second players to claim a$150,000 top prize on theCash Multiplier X10 game in a week. A Chicagoland UPS driver claimed a top prize on the game Tuesday after buying a winning ticket in Lebanon, Ind. Four top prizes of$150,000 are still unclaimed at this time.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly, and to always sign the back of their tickets.
As with all Hoosier Lottery games, the net income generated from sales of Hoosier Lottery Scratch-off games 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.
