Elvin Taylor wins $20,000 playing Powerball
Elvin Taylor of Bossier City claimed a $20,000 Powerball prize at the Lottery's Shreveport office.
About the Win
Taylor said it feels "cool" to win and plans to pay bills with his winnings.
Taylor's ticket matched four of the five white-ball numbers drawn, but missed the red Powerball number to win $10,000. Because he added the Power Play option to his ticket for an additional $1, his prize was multiplied by two when the Power Play number "2" was selected during the drawing, bringing his total winnings to $20,000.
Taylor purchased his winning ticket from Thirfty Liquor #11 on Airline Drive in Bossier City.
