Tu Ung of Harrisburg is celebrating after he won a $377,301 Cash 5 jackpot.

Ung beat odds of 1 in 749,398 to match all five numbers in the Dec. 10 drawing.

He claimed his prize Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $262,228.

Ung bought the $1 Quick Pick ticket online. Remember, you have three ways to buy tickets for draw games like Cash 5. You can go to your favorite retailer, you can Play at the Pump, or you can join our Player’s Club and buy them online. 

Ticket sales from draw games like Cash 5 make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $600 million a year for education.

Congratulations Tu!

Once again a player is asking how many entries in a drawing. Players have been asking for a running total on the drawings for over a year but NCEL refuses to add it to the web page. Why?
