A Hammond woman claimed a $74,000 Cash 5 jackpot, after winning the June 20 drawing.
Kathy Schloer bought the $1 winning Cash 5 ticket from County Seat Liquors at 918 South Court Street in Crown Point. She's a retired nurse and mother of three grown children who's married to a retired police officer.
Schloer won with the same numbers she's been playing for months.
"I rotate through six numbers based on birthdays in our family," she said. "At first, I wasn't sure if I played all five numbers this draw or not."
She plans to use the windfall to pay off her vacation home in Florida.
The Hoosier Lottery's Cash 5 game averages more than 4,000 winners every night and has a jackpot that starts at $50,000.
