Mix & Match won in Worthington


INDIANAPOLIS — Deborah Dyer of Worthington claimed a $200,000 Mix & Match prize at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters Thursday and The Nose knows what she plans to do with most of her winnings.

The Greene County woman matched 5 of 5 numbers on a single line in the Sept. 29 drawing. Dyer's lucky numbers were: 10-17-33-35-50.

Dyer is a huge fan of Mix & Match, a game she said she has played for about a year. In that time, she said she has won several times.   

"It just seems like better odds. I've already won $500, $350 and hit $50 several times," Dyer said in a release from Hoosier Lottery Headquarters. "It's paid for itself. It really has. Especially now."

Dyer's plans for the money aren't flashy, but are designed to give her peace of mind. She said she knew immediately that she wants to use her winnings to install new windows and pay off her house.

"I will have no debt!" Dyer said. 

She is excited because her newfound financial security will give her the ability to splurge on her grandchildren.

"Thanks!" Dyer said. "It is going to make a difference."

Each Mix & Match ticket offers players three lines of numbers for $2 and allows players to play both single lines and combined lines.

The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to please play responsibly.
