A trip to the grocery store for a box of gravy became anything but ordinary for Monica Chatman of Ferriday when she won a $4,000 top prize from a Hot Dice scratch-off ticket!

A Lottery regular player, Chatman decided to use the change from her grocery purchase to buy the $1 ticket.  She said it feels great to be a top prize winner and plans to use her winnings to ensure her children have a "beautiful Christmas."  She purchased her winning ticket at Ferriday Superette on Louisiana Avenue in Ferriday.
