Hoosier Lottery Winner Couldn't Believe His Luck

A Hoosier lottery Player from Kokomo, Indiana, picked up a check for $83,000 on Monday and told lottery staff he still had difficulty believing he'd won and admitted to checking his ticket 10 times.

Retiree Robert Briscoe's Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers in last Sunday's Cash 5 drawing.

"I kept saying, 'I know this ticket can’t be right. I don’t have this kind of luck," Briscoe recalled, but once the check was in his hand he was forced to admit he was wrong. He does have that kind of luck and now intends to straighten out his finances and look into buying a new home.
