INDIANAPOLIS - Somebody out there is holding a Hoosier Lottery ticket worth $27.5 million – but lotto officials say that person hasn't come forward yet.
The jackpot-winning ticket matching all six numbers in Saturday night's drawing was sold in Kokomo at the Marsh on Southway Boulevard.
The numbers on the winning ticket were 9-16-34-37-45-46.
The announcement has got people thinking: What would you do with all that money?
Kokomo resident Greg Hobbs says it's fun to think about, but not something he takes too seriously.
"I look at it as pure entertainment for people that do like to play the lottery," Hobbs said. "I have worked with folks who actually consider future lottery winnings as part of their retirement plan. They're obviously misguided in that thought."
The Hoosier Lottery's own website lists the estimated odds of matching all six numbers for the jackpot at 1 in 12,271,512. The lowest cash prize, a $3 payout, has odds of 1 in 53.
"I think it's all in good fun," said Dawn Kendall, another Kokomo resident. "It gives something for people to do, and if they want to spend their money, it's their money to spend."
Lottery officials want players to double-check their numbers and, if their ticket is the winner, to sign it and call customer service right away.
