Delton and Bonnie Brooks wins $12,000 playing Cool Winnings
Bonnie Brooks of Ponchatoula had a swing in her step after she realized she had purchased a top-prize winning Cool Winnings scratch-off from the Louisiana Lottery.
About the Win
"I asked the clerk to check the ticket," explained Brooks, age 67. "When she said the ticket would have to be claimed at a Lottery office, I skipped out of the store! I don't think they've ever seen a 67-year-old skipping before!"
Prizes over $600 must be paid at a Louisiana Lottery office.
Bonnie and her husband, Delton, said they plan to take all of their family to Disney World with their $12,000 prize. The winning ticket was purchased from Jemworks #6 on Highway 22 East in Ponchatoula.
Cool Winnings is a $2 game that offers a chance to win up to 10 times on each ticket. The game has one $12,000 top prize remaining as of Feb. 3.
