Crawfordsville retailer sells million dollar scratch-off

Thursday, November 17, 2011

CRAWFORDSVILLE -- A Montgomery County gas station is the site of the Hoosier Lottery's latest $1 million win.

GasAmerica at 2605 Lafayette Rd. in Crawfordsville is the latest Hoosier Lottery retailer to sell a $1 million winning ticket on the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza Scratch-off.

The prize was claimed in the name of CPT Trust of Ogden, Ill., at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters Nov. 14.

The lucky winner is a regular Hoosier Lottery player who frequently purchases tickets at the Lafayette Road GasAmerica in Crawfordsville. The winner plans to take his family to Disney World with his winnings.

As a hardworking man who worked two full-time jobs for more than 15 years, the winner's primary concern is ensuring the money goes to his grandchildren's education.

"I want them to have a good education and a good life," he said.

The lucky winner was in the right place at the right time to snatch up the fourth of seven million-dollar prizes offered on the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza Scratch-off. Three $1 million prizes remain unclaimed at this time.

The $1 million prize isn't even the top prize on the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza Scratch-off. The $20 scratch-off offers a top prize of $5 million.
