TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A local man is $1.5 million richer thanks to a lottery ticket.

The Hoosier Lottery says Air Guard Retiree Daniel Campbell won the Cash 5 jackpot.

Campbell told Lotto officials he plays almost daily...and it finally brought him some luck.

He bought the winning ticket at Casey's General Store in Riley.

Cash 5 is the only Hoosier Lottery daily drawing game with a rolling jackpot.

The jackpot starts at $75,000, after that it increases by at least $5,000 until someone matches all of the numbers.

He told lottery officials he and his wife are still deciding what to do with their prize money, but they are considering paying off their house.
