Statesville stores sell tickets worth $467,073 and $1 million
December 3, 2012
Two of the four tickets to win big prizes in drawings over the weekend were sold in Statesville. A Carolina Cash 5 ticket sold at Fast Phil’s on Taylorsville Road matched all five numbers Saturday night to win the $467,073 jackpot. A Powerball ticket sold at the Kangaroo Express on Safreit Road matched all five white balls to win $1 million.
Another Powerball ticket, sold in Raleigh, matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $10,000. That ticket was sold at the Dollar Man on Cross Link Road.
A Mega Millions ticket sold in Cumberland County won $30,000 in Friday’s drawing. The ticket, sold at Strickland’s on Maxwell Road in Stedman, matched four white balls and the Mega Ball. Whoever bought it added the Megaplier feature and, because the Megaplier was three, multiplied the prize amount from $10,000 to $30,000.
Winners have 180 days from the date of the drawings to collect their prizes. We’ll look forward to meeting those folks and wish you the best of luck scratching and matching!
Raleigh always have the big winners, and how is it possible that two big winners are in the same little town. What's wrong with that picture. It's not luck, the tickets are targeted for specific locations, no one has ever won big in my town, or anywhere close to my town. I think there is something unfair about this lottery in North Carolina. The people who win big are always people all in the same area. How can that be, unless the winners are selected based on the area they live in. The wealth should be spread around, afterall, everyone in North Carolina should be given a chance to win a big jackpot. ALL the big jackpots are in counties in or around Raleigh.
I have been an avid lottery players for years but must say that now i feel like some numbers are pre-determined some how. Last week i played 0560 FORTY TIMES!! It didn't come out that day but the next day it did!! :( My win would have been over $150,000. The total win for those who won playing that number the next day was $32,000. I've been bummed out about this since.
