Fort Wayne couple wins $2 million Powerball prize

Another city player gets $100,000 from scratch-off ticket

A Fort Wayne couple has won $2 million in Powerball, the Hoosier Lottery announced today.

Samuel Luckett and Antoinette Steele purchased their winning ticket at the Fairfield Marathon, 3230 Fairfield Ave., the lottery said in a statement.

When buying the ticket, the statement said, Luckett added the Power Play Multiplier for $1, which doubled the $1 million prize for matching the first five numbers, but not the Powerball.

After a seven-year engagement, "we can finally have the wedding we only imagined," Steele said in the statement.

The couple has seven children ages 8 to 16, and plan to take a trip to Disney World, the lottery said.

Also Monday, the lottery announced that Robin Bryant of Fort Wayne had won a top prize of $100,000 in the 20X the Cash scratch-off game.

Bryant purchased his ticket at Grand Food Junction, 1415 Coliseum Blvd. N.
