Willie Jean Roberts Hometown: Franklinton Game Played: 5X The Money Amount Won:
Car trouble is one of those unavoidable hassles in life Willie Jean Roberts of Franklinton may not have to worry about for a while now that she's claimed a $100,000 top prize from a 5X The Money scratch-off from the Louisiana Lottery.
"My car stopped three times on the way home after I bought my scratch-off tickets," said Roberts, age 74. "When I finally made it home, I scratched my winning ticket!"
Roberts said she isn't sure what she'll do with her winnings, except buy a new car.
She purchased her winning scratch-off from Franklinton Self Serve on Washington Street in Franklinton.
5X The Money is a $5 game that offers a chance to win up to 15 times on each ticket. The game has three $100,000 top prizes remaining as of May 19.
