Their lucky day

Finding a dollar brought additional luck

COLUMBUS - Finding a dollar brought a Columbus couple additional luck. On April 5, David Loomis and wife Beth won a $150,000 top prize in the Ohio Lottery’s top prize Supercash drawing.

In February Loomis purchased a winning $5 Supercash instant from Walford Market in Columbus. That ticket was worth $1,000 and automatically qualified him entry into the top prize drawing for $150,000. Loomis was one of 28 entrants in the top prize drawing that took place on 3/29.

On April 5, Loomis came to Lottery’s Columbus office thinking he had won a free hat and mug. Surprised by the Ohio Lottery Promotions Manager Allison Turner, 46-year-old Loomis cried after discovering he won $150,000, the top prize. Earlier that day his wife Beth had walked their dog proclaiming that after finding a dollar, that this might be their lucky day. It was.

The Ohio Lottery is actively seeking winners of all prize levels to share their stories. Players with an interest in telling theirs can contact the Ohio Lottery at

Since 1974, the Ohio Lottery has raised more than $17 billion to support K-12 education across Ohio. The Lottery’s fiscal year 2010 transfer to the Lottery Profits for Education Fund was $728.6 million.
