At first, Chris Ivey of Dequincy was puzzled when he scratched a Bonus Crossword scratch-off from the Louisiana Lottery.

"At first I thought I had won just $1,000," said Ivey, age 38, who then realized he had actually won one of the game's $30,000 top prizes. "It's shocking to win!"

Ivey said he plans to purchase a new truck with his winnings. He bought his winning ticket from Parkers Quick Stop & Deli on West Fourth Street in Dequincy.

Bonus Crossword is a $3 scratch-off game that offers players the chance to win up to $30,000. The game has one remaining top prize as of Feb. 3.
