A Chesterton father of three is $148,700 richer thanks to a Hoosier Lottery win.

Daymond Quick, an electrician at a local steel mill, purchased his Cash 5 ticket at Speedway, 5830 Franklin St., in Michigan City for the April 24 drawing.

Quick plans to use the money to send his 18-year-old daughter to college.

"Our daughter wants to go to Columbia (College) to study journalism and she got accepted but after we found out how much it cost, we had to tell her Columbia wasn't going to happen," Daymond Quick said in a statement issued Monday. "Now she can go."

His daughter will attend Columbia this fall.

"It's a relief," Quick's wife, Mary Beth, said. "She had tears in her eyes and gave her dad a big hug when he told her."

The couple also have a 16-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter. 

Daymond Quick's win is the 16th Cash 5 jackpot won since the game began in November 2012. The nightly game averages more than 4,000 daily winners and costs $1 per play.

The jackpot starts at $50,000 and increases nightly until someone wins.
