Trout Fishing in Louisiana; Father-To-Be Snags $100,000 Scratcher Prize


Only a little wind, ice and sleet kept father-to-be Benjamin Stringer of Trout, Louisiana, from claiming a $100,000 top prize from the Louisiana Lottery’s $100,000 Cash scratch-off.

“It feels unbelievable to win,” shared Stringer who had to wait a couple of days before claiming his prize due to weather conditions in his area.

“We’re expecting our first child,” explained Stringer, age 24.  “So I plan to use some of the winnings for the baby.”

Stringer plans to use the money to build on a piece of land he recently purchased.

Congratulations, man. And wife. And baby.
