The New Year is off to a big start for Michael Wade Wyatt of Mocksville. He scratched off a $10,000 prize playing the Jumbo Bucks ticket he bought at the Food Lion on Forest Hill Road in Lexington.
Wyatt, a mechanic, collected his winnings at the lottery’s Greensboro claim center on Jan. 3. There, he said it felt “super” to win the prize.
Jumbo Bucks is one of four games in the ‘Bucks’ series:
- Quick Bucks is a $1 game with a $5,000 top prize
- Junior Big Ol’ Bucks is a $2 game with a $50,000 top prize
- Mega Bucks is a $5 game with a $100,000 top prize
- Jumbo Bucks is a $10 game with a $750,000 top prize
