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.
