Local News

HAMMOND, La. (BRPROUD)-  James Balci of Hammond won some extra money to help him out during these unprecedented times.

Balci won $5,200 dollars playing Pick 4 Prize for the September 1 drawing.

“It is a little help for me to pay some bills and help my daughter,” Balci said.

Balci moved to Hammond from Turkey about 25 years ago. Before the pandemic he worked as a pipefitter.

He played his numbers straight/box meaning he could win by matching them in exact order or any order to win a prize; both of his tickets won straight for a $2,600 prize on each ticket, according to the Louisiana Lottery.

The tickets were purchased at a Hammond Winn-Dixe and RaceTrac gas station.

Balci has gotten lucky before as well. About two years ago he won almost $10,000 dollars playing Pick 4 straight.
