Staff reports

Sitting in the waiting room at her children‚ doctor’s office was anything but mundane for Penny King of Plaquemine when she decided to play the Crazy Crossword scratch-off stashed in her purse and discovered her ticket was a $30,000 top prize winner.   

“I play the crossword scratch-offs every day and I have thought I won big before,” shared King. “I was wrong that time though so I tried

not to get too excited this time.”

After her appointment, King stopped at a Louisiana Lottery retailer to check the value of her ticket and was excited to learn she had a $30,000 top prizewinner.

King purchased her winning ticket at Dale’s Trading Post on Hwy 75 in Plaquemine.  She plans to use her winnings to purchase furniture for her recently remodeled home.
