Martha Sticker Hometown: West Monroe Game Played: Gobbler Gold Amount Won:
Martha Sticker of West Monroe has her daughter to thank for winning the last $10,000 top prize from a Gobbler Gold scratch-off, which she claimed at the Louisiana Lottery's Monroe regional office.
"My daughter bought Gobbler Gold tickets for me, herself and her brother," said Sticker. "My ticket turned out to be the winner, but I didn't think it was a winner until she looked at it!"
Sticker said her immediate plans were trying "not to faint before going to the bank." She purchased her winning ticket from Cypress Street U-Pak-It on Cypress Street in West Monroe.
According to Louisiana Lottery policy, a scratch-off game is closed and removed from sale when all top prizes for the game have been claimed. All top prizes from Gobbler Gold have been claimed, and the game closed Dec. 16. The last day to redeem prizes from the game is April 15, 2009.
