‘I’m in overjoy!’ Henderson postal worker said of winning $500,000 BIG SPIN prize

Barbara Hanks-Davis of Henderson is the first player to spin the lottery’s BIG SPIN prize wheel and win the game’s top prize of half a million dollars.

“I’m in overjoy!” Hanks-Davis said jumping up and down. “I can’t believe this is happening. I’m a BIG SPIN winner!”
 
The post office worker’s good fortune started when she stopped at the Han-Dee Hugo on Leesville Rd. in Raleigh to get some chicken nuggets during her lunch break. While there, she bought The BIG SPIN scratch-off ticket. She took the $5 game back to her car and started scratching. She saw the SPIN symbol so she went to the website www.ncbigspin.com and put her code in.  That allowed her to spin a digital wheel. When it landed on The BIG SPIN, she couldn’t believe it.

“I thought, ‘This can’t be right. Maybe I hit the wrong button,’” Hanks-Davis said. “I called my son and had him check it and he said, ‘Yes mom. You did win.’  I started jumping and screaming on the phone. I was screaming and hollering, I was so excited. I had to calm myself down so I didn’t have a heart attack.”

Her good luck continued Monday during The BIG SPIN live event in Raleigh. Hanks-Davis stepped up to the prize wheel, raised her hands and gave it a big spin. She watched in anticipation as the wheel slowed down. The crowd roared when it stopped on $500,000.

“Woooh! Thank you lord,” Hanks-Davis said, as tears filled her eyes. “I just can’t believe it. I just can’t believe it. Holy Moly!”

Her husband, son, and soon to be daughter-in-law swept onto the stage as she was presented with the big check.


After required state and federal tax withholdings, Hanks-Davis took home $353,722.  Hanks-Davis said she’s got a lot of plans for the money.
 
“First and foremost, I’m going to do something for me,” Hanks-Davis said. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a situation to do something for myself. Then I’m going to make sure my family is taken care of. I’m also close to retirement, so hopefully this means I can retire a few years early.”

The BIG SPIN scratch-off ticket launched in October. Four more people have the chance to spin The BIG SPIN prize wheel for a chance to win $500,000.

The Big Spin is the most misleading ticket ever produced by the NCEL. I bought 2 and won a spin prize on one. I was excited and thought I was going to spin for a large prize. The ticket even shows the wheel with large amounts. Also, it seems logical to think big spin, big wheel = big money. However my dreams were shot down when my virtual spin revealed a measly $10.00. If I had won the normal way with the amount revealed under the winning number I would be ok with it, but I was misled into thinking I would be playing for a large amount with the spin prize. I didn't expect the big spin, but I think I should have won more than $10.00. I'm sure it wasn't the intent of the NCEL to mislead anyone, but that's exactly what happened.NC Lottery
Hi Charles, thanks for your feedback. The Big Spin is a new ticket concept, and so it does present the prize in a novel way. Our game designers and marketers appreciate hearing what players think though, and take it into account as they work on new games.

I noticed that a couple of the lucky rewards drawings haven't posted any winners or notifications for winners for drawings that have already passed, some nearly two weeks ago. NC Lottery
Thanks for letting us know, Yvonne! We'll have our web team get those names updated as soon as we have the winner's info.
