Mario Velazquez of Angier scored the final top prize in the JAMES BOND 007™ scratch-off game.

Velazquez purchased his lucky $5 ticket from the T-Mart on North Raleigh Street in Angier.

He claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $129,500.

Players can enter their JAMES BOND 007™ tickets into second-chance drawings to win a VIP trip for two to Las Vegas. Six trips can be won in three drawings, which include round-trip airfare to Las Vegas, four nights of deluxe accommodations and tickets to the JAMES BOND Lottery Challenge, where up to $1 million can be won.

The entry deadline for the second drawing is Tuesday and the drawing date is July 8.

Looks like he is about 12,000 short on his net?NC Lottery
Hi Jim, Good catch. There are several reasons why one winner might have a different take-home amount than another. They could have had some sort of debt owed to a state or local agency that was deducted from their win in our debt setoff program, or they could be a non-resident, which is taxed at a different rate. In this case, the winner was a non-resident, so they were subject to a 35% tax withholding.
