St. James Truck Driver Hauls In $3,250 Playing Pick 4
A self-employed dump truck driver hauled in a $3,250 prize when his four Quick Picked numbers were drawn in the Sept. 25 Pick 4 drawing. Ronald "Ron" Parsons, 47, said he’s not sure what he will do with the windfall other than putting it in the bank for now.
"I can now say I have extra money," Parsons mused, when he claimed his prize on Sept. 28.
Parsons purchased his winning ticket at Mobil Pump Handle in St. James. The four winning numbers were 6, 2, 7 and 7.
Pick 4 is a daily Numbers Game that offers players a chance to win up to $6,000 by picking four numbers between 0 and 9. Players can also allow the computer to generate four numbers randomly for them.
