Vidalia Resident Wins "Extreme" Prize from Scratch-off Ticket
Lonnie D. Barnett of Vidalia is pictured with a "big check" after claiming a $100,000 top prize from an "Extreme Green" scratch-off ticket.
When Lonnie D. Barnett bought the last $5 Extreme Green scratch-off at Papa T's in Vidalia, he didn't think he would be heading to Louisiana Lottery Corporation's Alexandria regional office to claim one of the game's top prizes of $100,000.
"It just feels so good!" said Barnett, who said he will use his winnings to repair his house after it was damaged in a storm.
Extreme Green has three $100,000 prizes remaining as of June 4 and gives players a chance to win up to 15 times on each ticket.
