MICHAEL D.
March 10, 2017

Indiana’s latest Cash 5 jackpot winner has seen a lot — he’s visited all 50 states — but he had never seen a winning lottery jackpot ticket in his own hands. That all changed Friday, Feb. 17.

Michael D., of Fishers, hit the estimated $156,000 Cash 5 jackpot.

Michael visited Speedway, 7235 E. 116th St. in Fishers, on Friday, Feb. 17 to purchase a Mega Millions ticket. He also regularly plays Cash 5, so he bought a Quick Pick Cash 5 ticket while he was there.

After the drawings, Michael used the Hoosier Lottery Mobile App to scan his tickets for winners. He scanned the Cash 5 ticket during that process.

“I said, ‘Great! I won $156,’” Michael said. Then, he decided to double check his numbers against the winning numbers. “I said, ‘Wait a minute, that’s all five.’”

Michael scanned the ticket and realized he misread the message from the app. He’d actually won $156,000 by matching all five Cash 5 numbers.

A regular lottery player, Michael likes to play games in different states when he travels.

He plans to use his winnings to pay off bills and save for the future.

Michael will continue playing Hoosier Lottery games, but he’s giving Cash 5 a break.

“I won,” he said. “Let someone else have a chance.”

Overall Odds for Cash 5 are 1 in 9.6.
