Delton and Bonnie Brooks Hometown: Ponchatoula Game Played: Cool Winnings Amount Won:
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.
"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.
