March 31 (UPI) — A North Carolina man said he was still enjoying the good feelings from his $ 5,000 lottery prize when he uncovered a $ 100,000 jackpot just two weeks later.
Henry Harvey II, of Spring Lake, told North Carolina Education Lottery officials that his recent win made it all the more shocking when the $ 25 Extreme Cash scratch-off ticket he bought from the Circle K store in Hope Mills turned out to be a $ 100,000 winner.
“Two weeks ago, I won $ 5,000 there on a $ 10 scratch-off,” he said. “So, this time, when I scratched-off and saw I won, I was extremely happy and surprised.”
Harvey said his most immediate plan for his winnings is to “stick it in the bank.”
“It was a shock,” he said. “Still is!”
