$1,000,000 Indiana Mega Millions Winner
People talk. And people talk a lot whenever there's a lottery winner in town. The townspeople in Warsaw, Indiana, are no exception. Word spread like wildfire once the Hoosier Lottery (also known as the Indiana Lottery) announced there was a $1,000,000 winner in town. The million-dollar lottery winner matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball, for the Tuesday, December 6th lottery drawing.
Normally, the payout for this size wager is $250,000, but because Redden spent an extra dollar on a Megaplier ticket, Ronald Redden of Winona Lake, Indiana, became an instant millionaire! According to the Hoosier Lottery, Redden purchased his lucky lottery ticket at 66 Center at 2518 E Center Street in Warsaw, Indiana, the same place he claimed his winning ticket today, December 13th, exactly one week after matching the winning lottery numbers.
What's Redden planning on doing with his new found riches? Even thought it's freezing cold in Indiana right now, he says he wants to have central air conditioning installed!
