Three big winners in four days

4:54 PM


Over the past four days, three players have claimed big lottery prizes.

This week’s biggest win came from the $383 million Powerball drawing on March 23. Janis Greco of Mooresville matched all five white balls on her Powerball ticket and collected her $1 million prize on Monday afternoon at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.

The largest instant scratch-off win was claimed by April Solomon of Whiteville. She learned of her $200,000 Power 7's win while scratching her ticket at Hill’s Food Store on JK Powell Boulevard in Whiteville, where she made her lucky purchase. “I was standing there and I just froze,” Solomon said. “It was a shocker.”

Dexter Barlow of Swansboro claimed this week’s biggest Carolina Cash 5 prize. Barlow plans to use the $114,957 he won in the March 22 drawing to make repairs on his home. "I looked at the screen, then back at my ticket," Barlow said. "I did that about four times. That’s when I started shaking.”

Other big winners include:

- Anthony Walters of Tarboro won $50,000 playing Ruby Red 7’s
- Donna Goodall of Plymouth won $27,000 playing Triple Winning 7’s
- Michael Williams of Oxford won $25,000 playing Rockin’ 5’s
- Regina Graves of Charlotte won $10,000 playing $5,000 a Week for Life!
- Bobby Keeling of Asheboro won $10,000 playing $2,500 a Week for Life!
 - Vickie Pierce of Lumberton won $10,000 playing Super Lucky 7’s

We hope everyone has a safe and lucky weekend.

If you are playing with the idea that you deserve to win because you have bills to pay or a sick family member. maybe you shouldn't be playing. It is a game of chance and your chance is just as good as mine. If you feel let down or cheated when you don't win it's time to quit. You've got a problem. If you enjoy each time you check your numbers or get excited to try again after not matching that last scratch off. By all means have fun and I don't mean all the means your family has. All this game is, is a second tax on the poor who think it'll get them out of the poverty or financial situation they are already in.

@ PLAYER (MB1965) - That's a question of state law for the state legislature. Most states with lotteries do not allow winners to claim anonymously. The idea is that, since the lottery is run by the state, the citizens have a right to know where they money goes. The public should have confidence that real people win real prizes playing the lottery.

I was just wondering why you show the winners names and where they reside. It seems the North Carolina Lottery would be concerned about their winners safty and security. Some states allow the winner to remain anonymous will North Carolina concider this in the future?

to me it seems as if the second chance tickets are a lot harder to win off of . they tell you that not the case but from experience with buying 2nd chance tickets and other non 2nd chance tickets nobody can tell me there isn't a difference. But i myself no better !

Everyone has needs,but whether we work hard, or win the lottery life goes on and bills have to be payed, mouths have to get fed, you can't sit around the house worrying about if you gonna hit or not, you just have to play and see,so the sad faces,and negativity, hoping that someone will give you their money is not going to work, so just be happy, and wait your turn *JUST A THOUGHT* I SEE TOO MANY SAD FACES ON PEOPLES' POST

@ CROCHETCHICK - Sorry about the typo; you are correct that Regina Graves of Charlotte won $10,000 playing $5,000 a Week for Life!

On 3/31/2013 03:03, CrochetChick said

Interesting that Regina Graves of Charlotte won 10k playing a game that doesn't even exist! But congrats to those who won legitimately. :)

@ PLAYER (K61) - Winners in Lucke-Rewards drawings are announced as soon as possible. No announcement of a particular winner can be made until A) a winner responds to notification by the lottery and B) that winner completes the claim process. Prizes of $600 and above must be claimed at one of the lottery's regional claim centers, so it is often several days before a winner's name can be announced.

On 3/30/2013 10:48, Lucke-Zone said

@ PLAYER (DD54) - Winners in a Lucke-Rewards drawing will be notified at the e-mail associated with his or her Lucke-Zone account.

On 3/30/2013 10:39, Lucke-Zone said

@ REDCHEVY - Keep in mind that any city or town where you see a bigger winner listed also had many non-winning tickets. Nobody has a better or worse chance of winning a lottery prize, whether you live in Hillsborough or anywhere else in North Carolina its all a matter of luck.

If you don't buy a scratch ticket or a lotto ticket, you can't win. If you do you help the NC Education System, So you win in that way no matter what.
