Video:'Big Win' means dream trip to Hawaii

February 12, 2018 Posted by NC Lottery at 10:58 AM

Kimberly Hansen of Mint Hill is going to take a dream trip to Hawaii after she won $5,000 on the Big Win scratch-off ticket.

 She bought the $5 ticket at the Earp's Express on Brighton Park Drive in Charlotte. She took the ticket home and scratched it on her porch. When she saw what she won, she couldn't believe it.

"I started screaming," Hansen said.

Ticket sales from instant games like Big Win make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $600 million a year for education.


Congratulations Kimberly!

Is there any way to go back to the old site design? The new site is HORRIBLE and was designed with little or no thought to it at all.

I see last nights LFL drawing was good to NC, especially WNC! What's that make now LZ? In honor of Fat Tuesday, I'm gonna guess a baker's dozen 2nd tier winners for NC !?!? NC Lottery
That makes 14 players who have won the second prize of $25,000 a Year For Life and two players who have won the top prize of $1,000 a Day For Life.

Congrats Kimberly. LZ, is there really around 930,000 members of the "players club"? That's a lot of new members in less then a year!! Side bar here; I saw a person last week buy 2 rolls of $30 tics & 2 rolls of the new $20 tics (cash). That's $3000. and YES, I saw them enter every ticket into the LZ with their phone. 1200 entries into the x the cash & 60 entries into the extreme. That's more entries then most of us will have in either contest. Hard to compete with players like that. Clerk said she sees that regularly.... NC Lottery
Denver-That is correct.We are just shy of 930,000 members.
