Sometimes you can win an incredible amount on money with Cash 5 jackpot. A guy from Indiana named Devin Hodson definitely proved this recently. Saturday January 21, 2017 became the best day of his life. The Farmland man won a record-breaking 1,239,000 dollars.
Too big to cash
Devin Hodson claimed his prize at the Hoosier Lottery Headquarters the next Monday. Of course he was excited beyond words when he discovered the big win. At that moment he was visiting the Village Pantry in Muncie. An employee of the shop scanned his ticket and told Hodson that his prize couldn’t be awarded in cash because it was too big!
The new millionaire decided to call his girlfriend immediately, who he is engaged to. His future wife couldn’t believe it and thought it was a joke. Hodson really did won the main prize of Cash 5, a game has been playing for years. Every week he bought a Cash 5 ticket. At Friday he decided to buy a 10 dollar ‘Quick Pick’ ticket because the Jackpot had risen to a record level.
An act of fate
Interestingly enough, Hodson threw the ticket in the trash because the numbers didn’t match. Usually the chance to win at Cash 5 is about 1:9.6. Like an act of fate, Hodson suddenly picked the ticket out of the trash to play again with the numbers on the Saturday draw. It appeared to be the best decision of his life. Among other things, the new millionaire wants to buy a new car and redesign his home.
