Louisiana Lottery Winner of $350,000 Needs New Tires. [How About Just Buying a New Car, Dude?]


Eddie Taylor of New Orleans is thrilled to claim the $350,000 Lotto jackpot from the Aug. 17 drawing at Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge.

After his tires blew out last month, Eddie Taylor of New Orleans started borrowing family members’ cars while saving for a new set.

When Taylor arrived at Louisiana Lottery headquarters in Baton Rouge to claim the $350,000 Lotto jackpot from Aug. 17, he knew exactly what he was going to do with the prize money – purchase new tires, among other things.

“We’re going to have a family meeting to discuss what to do with the money,” shared Taylor, age 54.

“I’m going to buy new tires, maybe even a new car.  My daughter wants to go to Las Vegas to see Cirque Du Soliel, so we’ll probably do that too.”

A loyal player, Taylor has been playing the Louisiana Lottery for 20 years since its inception in 1991. He said he’s always enjoyed thinking of how he could help his family and others if he ever “won big.”

Now he’s won big.

How cool is that?
