Hoke County man says Cash 5 jackpot is a good blessing

October 16, 2020 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:20 PM

Aaron Garcia of Raeford said winning half of a $390,814 Cash 5 jackpot will be “a good blessing.”

Garcia’s Quick Pick ticket was one of two tickets that matched all five numbers in Wednesday’s drawing.

Garcia said he learned he was the winner Thursday when he checked the winning numbers on the lottery’s website.

“I was surprised,” Garcia said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Garcia bought his ticket at the Lucky Stop on N.C. 401 Business in Raeford. He said he might use some of the prize money to buy a car.

He received half of the jackpot, $195,407, and the other half will go to the second winner. After required federal and state tax withholdings, Garcia took home $138,251.

The other lucky Cash 5 ticket was sold at the Sheetz on N.C. 86 in Hillsborough.

Carolina Cash 5 tickets are $1 and drawings are held every night. Friday’s jackpot is $110,000.

Cash 5 is one of four lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets either through the lottery’s website or with the app.

I'm so glad to see the NC lottery is starting to play fair with multiple winners on the cash 5 instead of one winner all the time. Every since I posted a comment a week ago about it only being one winner on the cash 5 all of a sudden we are starting to see multiple winners know. Wow thanks for spreading the cash
