EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The West Side Nut Club says there is a winner of the 2021 50/50 half pot.

Lawyers say the winner is from the Tri-State, but this was their first trip to the Fall Festival.

The winner wants to stay anonymous.

Lawyers say the person wanted to get a brisket sandwich, but it was sold out. So, they settled on a ribeye and three quarters of million dollars.

They say the winner will be back to the Fall Festival in the future to support the West Side Nut Club and the community.
