A NORTH Carolina man who won a $100,000 lottery prize has shared the kind advice that helped him nab the money.
According to the NC Education Lottery, Kenneth Smith, 33, bought a $100 million scratch-off lottery ticket in Mega Cash at a gas station in Calabash.
Smith told the NC Education Lottery that he went to this particular store at the recommendation of a friend and bought a lottery ticket.
“We wouldn’t have known about it if it weren’t for him,” Smith said in a press release.
Smith won the lottery while he and his wife were celebrating their wedding anniversary on the beach.
After winning the $100,000 prize, he told the NC Education Lottery that he invited everyone to breakfast.
“I’ve always dreamed of winning a big prize in the lottery,” Smith said.
His prize money of $100,000 was $71,016 after taxes.
Smith told the lottery group he plans to use his winnings for home improvement and a fence for his family’s new puppy.
The NC Education Lottery accepted Twitter to congratulate Smith on his big win.
In the press release, the NC Education Lottery announced that two $2 million prizes and four $100,000 prizes were still up for grabs from the $100 million mega cash game.
Previously, lottery winner Mark Maltz revealed how he won THREE times in just one day after picking up tickets from a local gas station.
He hit the jackpot and won a prize of more than $325,000 in 2018.
Another gambler previously revealed how he won the lottery for the fourth time in his life.
In January, Mike “Lucky” Luciano revealed his latest big haul – bringing his total winnings to $4.6 million.
Amazingly, the recent win, worth more than $1 million, was the third big cash prize he had won in the past six years.
