When Timmie Julian of Rayne checked the Lottery's website and noticed the Right on the Money scratch-off game had only one top prize remaining, he had a feeling he should purchase a ticket.  That feeling paid off in a big way when the Right on the Money ticket he purchased turned out to be that final $100,000 top prize winner.

"This money will be passed through my hands and right to a good cause," explained Julian.  "Winning this money was truly a blessing and it came at the right time."

Julian, age 40, purchased his winning scratch-off from Shop Rite #35 on The Boulevard in Rayne.  He shared that he previously won $1,000 from a crossword-style scratch-off purchased at the same store.
