Terry Splawn of Concord is no stranger to good luck. In fact, a Labor Day $100,000 win made Splawn a three-time winner of a big lottery prize.
“It’s unbelievable,” he said. “It certainly is fun to win.”
Splawn’s good luck first struck back in April 2017 when he bought a Millionaire Bucks ticket from Sam’s Mini Stop on Old Charlotte Road in Concord and won $1 million. Two years later, in March 2019, he bought a $150 Millio0n Cash Explosion scratch-off ticket from the same store and scored a second $1 million prize.
His third stroke of good luck came on Monday, when he purchased a $20 Premiere Cash ticket from the same Sam’s Mini Stop.
“It was on Labor Day!” he recalled. “So, it was a really nice surprise for the day.”
Splawn claimed his Premiere Cash prize on Wednesday and took home $70,756 after required federal and state tax withholdings.
Premiere Cash launched in August with four top prizes of $2 million and eight $100,000 prizes. Three top prizes and seven $100,000 prizes remain to be won.
Ticket sales from scratch-offs like Premiere Cash make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million a year for education. For details on how $14.7 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Cabarrus County in 2020, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.
