Cole Camp Woman Wins $15,625
Playing family birthdays paid off for a Cole Camp woman when her four special numbers - 2, 7, 5 and 9 - were drawn during the Feb. 24 evening Pick 4 drawing. Barbara "Barb" Williams, 52, said she bought five of the same $1 straight/boxed combinations for the drawing, and when those numbers came up, she won five prizes of $3,125 for a total of $15,625.
"I hate to pay bills with my winnings," she said. "I want to go back to Vegas. I may have Lasik eye surgery, too."
Williams purchased her winning tickets at Cash Thriftway, 302 E. Main in Cole Camp. She and her husband, Coy, are the owners of Coy’s Automotive in Cole Camp.
Williams said this isn’t the first time she’s won a big prize in Pick 4. Last year on Halloween, she won $12,500.
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.
