Husband's Birthday Brings $12,500 for Cole Camp Woman
Using her husband’s birth date turned into a treat for one Cole Camp woman this Halloween when the four-number combination matched the four numbers drawn in the evening Pick 4 drawing. Barbara "Barb" Williams, 52, said she bought four plays with the same combination ? 5, 1, 0 and 8 ? and she won $3,125 on each play for a total of $12,500.
"I’ll probably go to Vegas," she said. "And Christmas is just around the corner, too."
Williams purchased her winning ticket at Cash Thriftway, 302 E. Main in Cole Camp. She and her husband, Coy, are the owners of Coy’s Automotive in Cole Camp.
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.
