Jennifer and Danny Adams of Noblesville have been married for 33 years, but their most recent Valentine’s Day together will always stand out as an extra special one because the couple spent a small part of Feb. 14 at Hoosier Lottery Headquarters in Indianapolis claiming the $100,000 prize they won on a Winning In Spades scratch-off ticket.”This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Jennifer said. “It’s quite a thing to get to do on Valentine’s Day.”Jennifer and Danny bought their winning ticket Feb. 9 at CJ’s Stop-N-Go, 5855 E. 211th St., Noblesville.

“I can’t tell you how many times we both read this ticket,” Jennifer said. “We kept asking, ‘Is this too good to be true?’ ”

The couple, which has three grown children and four grandchildren, has no plans for their money, other than to save it.

“After putting three kids through college, we’ve been on such a ‘savings plan’ for so many years,” Danny said. “It will be hard to spend it.”

In fiscal year 2012, the Hoosier Lottery generated $211 million in surplus revenue which was used to significantly reduce the motor vehicle excise tax for all Hoosier drivers and also supported the pension funds for retired Indiana teachers, police and firefighters. Player prizes for the fiscal year totaled $533 million and $60 million was earned by Indiana retailers on the sale of Hoosier Lottery products, according to lottery officials.
