BP sells $3M lotto ticket - where's the winner?
One Hoosier Lotto ticket sold at
the Indian Trail BP in Milan is worth $3 million, but whos
got the ticket? The ticket matched all six numbers in the drawing
on Saturday, May 30: 5-12-17-21-23-34.
Roxanna Collins, co-owner with husband, Brian, of the Indian Trail
BP, said she hopes its someone local, but the lucky winner
hasnt come forward yet. She said the ticket was sold sometime
between Thursday, May 28 and Saturday, May 30. Right now they
dont know who the cashier was that actually sold the winning
ticket. That will be revealed when the winner comes forward.
Its the second time a store owned by Brian and Roxanna Collins
has had a winner take home millions after playing the lottery.
The first was in 1998 when a person from Indianapolis won the
Powerball, taking the $21M prize. The Collins owned the Delaware
BP station at that time.
Were excited! Roxanna said. Even though this
win was substantially smaller than the $21M, she said the store
will get one percent of the winnings. Some of that will be shared
with the employees in the form of a bonus. It will be smaller
than what we gave the last time, but they will still get something,
Roxannas advice is for people to check their tickets. Dont
ever throw them away! She said one customer came in this
week and said he might have lost his ticket. Hang on to
them (tickets) and be sure to check your numbers, she concluded.
