Houma Mans $100,000 MONOPOLY Scratch-off Win Inspires Friend to Also Play and Win
The news of Torrell Jasper's $100,000 winning MONOPOLY scratch-off spread as fast as his good fortune in Houma. Just days after Jasper claimed the game's first top prize, his friend Dontrell Williams gave the game a try and ended up winning $1,000 himself.
Jasper said he chose the MONOPOLY scratch-off ticket because it was the last ticket in the dispenser. He said he plans to purchase a new home with his winnings.
Williams said he plans to celebrate by taking his family out to dinner.
Jasper purchased his winning ticket at Cajun Magic Truck Stop in Houma, and Williams purchased his winning ticket at Jubilee Exxon #4624 in Houma.
