I can’t count the number of times that I have played the lottery but has never got lucky. I decided to play because I always think that maybe it will be my long awaited lucky day. Well, it pays to wait and never stops trying for the couple Albert and Drena George as they won the Hoosier Lottery $14 million jackpot.After taking the Hoosier lottery cash option, the couple walked away with a cool $6.1 million.
According to the couple, they purchased their tickets at the Gas America on West Commerce Road in Daleville and that they typically buy their Hoosier lotto tickets every Sunday and Thursday.
While others might consider buying lotto tickets a not really a wise spending, never lose hope as they are a regular buyer of the Hoosier Lotto tickets. Their winning combination numbers are 7-12-14-19-30-32.
It is on Thanksgiving Day morning that Drena George learned the good news of winning the lottery. Just in time for the holiday celebration. The couple said that they will never forget this “Thanksgiving Day” in their lives.
“When I went to wake Albert up, he thought I had dropped the turkey and needed help,” Drena said.
The sad thing is that Albert’s father died last Monday and had never neither learns nor experience of knowing the good news of winning the Hoosier Lotto. Albert said that his father is looking on them and maybe asking why it didn’t happen while he’s still living.
