NC Farmer Wins Big in NC Education Lottery

A North Carolina farmer spent $5 on a lottery ticket — and scored a big jackpot win. Now, he’s closer to making his dream of buying a new house come true, according to the N.C. Education Lottery. The 27-year-old hit the jackpot after a stop at Mount Olive Mobile & Tobacco, a business roughly 65 miles southeast of Raleigh. That’s where officials said Rodriguez tried his luck on a ticket for the Cash Payout game. It turns out, his scratch-off won the game’s top prize of $200,000.
