Randolph County man wins Cash 5 jackpot a second time, scores $110,000

July 28, 2020 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:00 AM

On Thursday, Ronnie Bescher of Randleman found himself the lucky winner of a Cash 5 jackpot for the second time, scoring a $110,000 prize.

“I’m just happy I won again,” said Bescher.

Bescher, who has worked as a mechanic for 36 years, bought his lucky ticket from the Food Lion on Pointe South Drive in Randleman.

He still plays using the same numbers that won him a $73,865 Cash 5 jackpot back in 2009.“I just mark them down and kept them for a long time,” he said. “I don’t change them.”

Bescher watched the live drawing that night. When he realized he won, he said, “’Woo!”

The next day, he called his son and said, “Take me to Raleigh.”

Bescher claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $77,825.

“The win comes at a good time,” he said.

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, through Online Play on the lottery’s website, or on the NC Lottery Official Mobile app.

Tuesday’s Cash 5 jackpot is $230,000.

Hey John, I'm pretty sure you could have gone to the customer service desk to buy your cash 5 tickets. I do that a bunch, because I use replay a bunch. That is also where they sell all the tickets too big to fit in the machine.

It's okay, I just went to my regular store. I went to Food Lion because there seems to be a lot of big winners bought at Food lion's. Still takes a lot of luck to win a big prize though, no matter where you buy at.

Well this morning I went to the nearby Food Lion to buy some cash five and scratch tickets. Just my luck, the machine was out of order.NC Lottery
Sorry about that, John! Most often when our vending machines are down it is because the store is conducting their daily accounting for the machine. Next time this happens, we encourage you to reach out and ask the store employees when the machine will be back up and running. They can also always reach out to their service rep to have someone out to fix it if there is an issue with the machine.
