Crowley Woman Wins $14,000 on Scratch-Off Ticket
When April Bourque of Crowley called her husband to tell him that she won a $14,000 top prize from the Lottery’s Black Cherry Doubler scratch-off, he thought she was lying.
“I called my husband at work and I said ‘You will never guess what I did,’” explained Bourque. “When I told him I won, he didn’t believe me.”
Bourque, age 28, shared that after winning a small amount from another scratch-off ticket, she decided to use her winnings to buy more tickets. She choseBlack Cherry Doubler because she loves to play slot machines.
Bourque purchased her top-prize winning ticket at Shop Rite #1 on South Parkerson Avenue in Crowley. She plans to spend her winnings on her children.
Black Cherry Doubler is a $2 scratch-off that offers the chance to win up to 10 times on each ticket. There are four remaining top prizes as of April 2.
