Chesterton dad wins Cash 5 lottery

Updated: April 29, 2013 10:09PM



A Chesterton father of three children has claimed the $148,700 prize from the April 24 Hoosier Lottery Cash 5 jackpot.

Daymond Quick, an electrician at a local steel mill, purchased the winning ticket at a Speedway store in Michigan City.

Quick’s win is the 16th Cash 5 jackpot hit since the game launched last November. The nightly game averages more than 4,000 winners every night and costs $1 per play. The jackpot starts at $50,000 and rolls, or increases, every night until it is hit.

Quick and his wife, Mary Beth who’s a nurse, say their daughter’s education is foremost in their plans.

“Our daughter wants to go to Columbia (College) to study journalism - and she got accepted - but after we found out how much it cost, we had to tell her Columbia wasn’t going to happen,” said Daymond Quick. “Now she can go.”

“It’s a relief,” said Mary Beth Quick.  “She had tears in her eyes and gave her dad a big hug when he told her.”

In addition to their Columbia-bound senior, the Quicks also have a 16-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter.
