2 win $100K on scratch-off lottery tickets


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Lottery's MONOPOLY scratch-off game, which launched in February, has seen two people win its top prize of $100,000. 

Lottery officials say Larry Reeves, of Baton Rouge, purchased his winning ticket from Circle K #8062 in Baton Rouge, while Torrell Jasper, of Houma, bought his from Cajun Magic Truck Stop in Houma. 

Reeves has not said how he plans to use his winnings, but Jasper says he plans to buy a new home. Jasper's luck prompted his friend, Dontrell Williams, to give the game a try. When he did, he ended up winning $1,000 on a ticket purchased at Jubilee Exxon #4624 in Houma. 

The game still has three top prizes remaining.
