A weekend routine for one Hoosier couple paid off.

Barbara and Gary Kirkwood say they usually play Powerball on Saturday night, but that changes when the jackpot gets large.

They decided to play on January 20th, buying a ticket from Fast Break #5 in Evansville.

Their ticket matched four numbers and the Powerball, winning them $50,000.
