Top Prize Doubles the Fun for Addis Resident
Antrie Williams Bynum of Addis had to do a double take before she realized she was holding a $12,000 top prize winning Double Match ticket.
"I scratched the ticket when I got in the car, but I hadn't scratched it all the way," said Bynum, age 42. "One of the winning numbers was 16, and I thought I had a 6! I decided to scratch the whole area even though I thought I hadn't won. When I realized it was a top prize winning ticket, I had to turn the air conditioner all the way up in the car!"
Bynum said she then took the ticket to the salon she owns and had the ladies who work there look over the ticket too.
She purchased her top prize winning ticket at Brusly Chevron on Highway 1 in Port Allen.
Double Match is a $2 game that offers two ways to play and two ways to win, with the chance to win up to 9 times. The game has four $12,000 top prizes remaining as of March 8.
