Stanley Williams of Raleigh said he felt like a child on Christmas morning after he won $100,000 playing the 100X The Cash scratch-off game.
“I was like a little boy, so excited,” he recalled. “It felt like Santa Claus had come!”
Williams’ good luck happened Sunday when he stopped by the J&J Mart on New Birch Drive in Raleigh. He normally plays Pick 3, but said he felt like playing something different.
After deciding on the $20 ticket, Williams headed home and started scratching. When he realized he won $100,000, he was stunned.
“It was unbelievable,” Williams said. “I didn’t sleep at all last night I was so excited.”
Williams claimed his prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $70,507. He said he plans to use some of his prize money to powerwash and paint his house.
100X The Cash launched in February with three $4 million prizes, six $1 million prizes and six $100,000 prizes. Two $4 million prizes, four $1 million prizes, and three $100,000 prizes remain.
