 $5M Lottery Winner Shares Cash With Mom

Something strange happened with a lottery win in Indiana, USA. A losing Hoosier Lottery ticket ended up winning a lucky player $5 million. How could this be possible? Read further to find out. 

The winning lottery ticket belonged to Antonia Mascari from Greenwood in Indiana. Antonia won $5 million after she was a finalist in a Hoosier Lottery second-chance grand prize drawing. The draw took place on the 25th of September, and it was the sort of fate that Antonia did not see coming her way. 

Antonia works in the marketing department for the Indianapolis Fruit Company and made it perfectly clear that she wasn’t in any rush to quit her job despite her massive windfall. It isn’t unusual for winners to keep their jobs. Stephen and Tana Harrod from Kansas still kept both their jobs despite their $9.85 million Hot Lotto win. 

Lottery Win

Antonia is far from thinking about just herself, though. The selfless and beautiful lottery winner has already chosen to share her lottery winnings with her mother, Theresa Mascari. They both entered hundreds of losing scratch cards into the draw.

The winning mother and daughter also made another important decision together, and that was to accept their winnings as a once-off payment after taxes have been applied to them. After all the necessary requirements have been carried out, Antonia and her mother will both get $1.47 million. This isn’t the first time that family members have shared their winnings with each other, however. In July this year, Frank Schwent from Missouri shared $20,000 with his brother-in-law after winning it with the Mega Millions online. 

And this isn’t to say that Antonia’s generous deeds will stop there. She plans on using the remainder of her winnings to help as many members of her family as possible. She said she has already looked into setting up a college fund for her two young nieces and also wants to buy her own house soon. 

“I couldn’t stand wasting money on rent, but now I can get a townhouse,” said Antonia. Other plans on her list include holidays she’ll go on with her brother, sister and cousins. “I love sharing with my family. Family is a big part of my life. I would have split the money with my mom even if she hadn’t entered any scratch-off tickets with me,” she added.

Family First After Lottery Win

Antonia’s Hoosier lottery win us the latest lottery win in the state. She has described her lottery win as being “surreal” and says that the best feeling of all is that she is “financially secure” and never has to worry about money. Her ecstatic family is planning a big celebration together as we speak. 

Congratulations to Antonia and her mother, and we wish her the best for the future years to come. In other news, the Powerball online jackpot has been WON! Stay tuned to our blog to find out who the big winner of €266 million was.
