Two Co-Workers Win Using Same Numbers
Two co-workers at Dollar General in Fulton are both $3,125 richer after playing the numbers 1, 9, 4 and 2 in Pick 4 on Feb. 25. Dulcy Keesler, 62, of Fulton said she always plays those numbers since it is the year of her birth. Her friend and co-worker Charles "Charlie" Baker, 50, of Fulton also played Keesler’s lucky numbers on Feb. 25 and won.
"My numbers weren’t doing very good, and I knew she has won before, so I started playing her numbers about a week or two ago," said Baker.
Both Keesler and Baker said they plan to use the windfall to pay bills. Keesler also may use some of her prize money for a trip she is taking to Florida next week to see her daughter.
Keesler and Baker both purchased their winning Pick 4 tickets at Fastlane Tanglewood in Fulton.
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.
