The jackpot for the Hoosier Lottery had been growing since October 2013, and it was bound to be won sometime. And when Larry and Connie Miller of Noblesville finally won the jackpot on the May 10th draw, it was already worth $27.5 million – the seventh highest in the history of the Hoosier Lottery.
Given a choice of receiving $916,000 per year before taxes for the next 30 years, or a single payment of $11.1 million before taxes, the couple chose to receive their prize in a one time payment.
Though the Millers are now multimillionaires, they say they have no intention of letting their new found wealth change them or their way of life. The couple plan to use the money to enjoy the golden years of their lives together.
