When 30-year-old Joseph A. Barre' of Alexandria redeemed a $2 prize from a scratch-off, he had no idea that he would be heading to the Louisiana Lottery Corporation's Alexandria office to claim an $11,000 top prize on a Fire 'N' Dice ticket.  He had purchased the Fire 'N' Dice ticket with his original $2 prize.

Barre' purchased his winning ticket at Hilgers Texaco #4401 on Old Highway 1 in Lena.  He said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills.

Fire 'N' Dice is a $2 scratch-off ticket that features three remaining top prizes as of May 18 and the chance to win up to 10 times.
