Faulk said his immediate plans for his winnings are to purchase a home.
“I was shocked!” exclaimed Faulk after the top-prize amount displayed on his second scratch-off ticket.
Faulk purchased his winning ticket and one other scratch-off from Murphy USA #7509 in Breaux Bridge during his lunch break. He scratched the first ticket, which was not a winner, so he didn’t get his hopes up when playing the next one.
“The most I’ve won before this was about $500,” he said.
