A craving for pie took Diana Chabrier of Franklinton on a Saturday night dessert run to a grocery store where she got instead a sweet $100,000 prize.

“They didn’t have my pie so I got a ticket instead,” laughed Chabrier. “I can’t say the name of the pie, or it will sell out.”

Chabrier bought her $30 200X The Cash ticket from the Food Lion on U.S. 1 in Franklinton. She checked the ticket early Sunday morning with her husband and daughter.

“I thought the ticket said 20X,” Chabrier recalled. “My daughter was like, ‘mom that doesn’t say 20.’”

After taking a picture and zooming in, Chabrier realized it was 200X— and that she had won $100,000.

“I’m just so grateful,” Chabrier said. “This will really take the weight off my husband’s shoulders.”

Chabrier plans to use her winnings to pay bills and finally get her pie.

Chabrier arrived at lottery headquarters Monday to collect her prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,019.

The 200X The Cash game launched in March with six top prizes of $5 million and 18 $100,000 prizes. Six $5 million prizes and 15 $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

Ticket sales from scratch-off games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million per year for education. For details on how money raised by the lottery made a difference in Franklin County in 2021, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.
