$27.5 Million Hoosier Lotto Jackpot Won

May 12, 14 $27.5 Million Hoosier Lotto Jackpot Won

May 12, 2014 – A Hoosier Lotto ticket sold in Kokomo, Ind., this weekend could have been the greatest Mother’s Day Gift ever given, or it could have just gone to one very lucky Hoosier.

The single ticket in Kokomo matched all six winning numbers in Saturday’s Hoosier Lotto drawing to win a $27.5 million jackpot.

Those winning numbers were 9, 16, 34, 37, 45 and 46.  According to a press release from the Hoosier Lottery, the winning ticket was sold at Marsh Supermarket, 208 Southway Blvd. E. in Kokomo.

The massive prize had been growing for more than half a year, since October, 2013, when another Hoosier Lottery player won a $3.5 million jackpot.

And, according to another press release from the Lottery Sunday, this weekend’s jackpot win was the end of an era for Hoosier Lotto.

Yesterday, changes went into effect that will impact the way Hoosier Lotto jackpots grow.  After a Wednesday night rollover, the jackpot will grow by $300,000, and when the jackpot rolls over after Saturday drawings the jackpot will increase by $200,000

The lottery also adopted the same annuity payout option as Powerball offers its winners: 30 annual payments that increase with each year.  So, for Saturday’s big Hoosier Lotto winner, the question will be cash or 30 years of big checks.
