(GREENCASTLE) - A great-grandfather from Greencastle won $5 million this month with a Hoosier Lottery scratch off ticket.

Seth Collins claimed a $5 million prize on the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza scratch-off game Jan. 3.

Collins is the father of 10, grandfather of 26 and great-grandfather of 45.

He still works full-time, and thought the win might finally be the motivation he and his wife needed to quit their full-time jobs at a nursing home cafeteria, a Hoosier Lottery release said.

Collins bought his winning ticket at the Speedway on Indianapolis Road in Greencastle.
