Samuel Naso of Charlotte says special numbers led him to a $355,497 Cash 5 jackpot win.
Naso purchased his $1 ticket for the Oct. 16 drawing through Online Play using his NC Education Lottery account. Later that week, he went online to check his numbers and saw a notification in his account. Opening the message, Naso was shocked to see he had won the jackpot.
He claimed his jackpot Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, Naso took home $237,364.
Cash 5 is a statewide draw game that gives players the chance to win a jackpot every single night. Tickets cost $1 and players can buy tickets at most lottery retailers or on the lottery’s website. The jackpot for Monday’s drawing is $120,000.
