A Noblesville couple claimed a $27.5 million Hoosier Lotto jackpot Wednesday.

Larry and Connie Miller were presented with a check for the winnings at Hoosier Lottery headquarters in Indianapolis.

"This most recent blessing is incredibly humbling, surprising and exciting. Naturally, the shock and thrill of winning the lottery was an incredibly exciting feeling and certainly a little bit overwhelming," the couple wrote in a statement.

The Millers purchased their winning ticket for the May 10 drawing at the Marsh supermarket on Southway Blvd. East in Kokomo.

The winning ticket with the numbers of 9-16-34-37-45-46 will pay the Millers approximately $11.1 million before taxes as a cash option. The other option would have been a 30-year annuity where they would have received $916,000 a year before taxes.

"We plan to work closely with our trusted financial and legal advisors to ensure that we are good stewards of this wonderful gift. Going forward, we simply look forward to spending our golden years together enjoying the life we have been given," the Millers wrote.
