“We’re over the moon,” she said as she claimed her prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. “We just couldn’t believe it.”

Fisher purchased her winning $250,000 Gold Rush ticket from the Speedway on N.C. 16 North in Denver.

After required federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $176,876.

The best I've done on this ticket is a gold bar win all for $1000 which was good, but it should've been more. Also, is there anyway to find out the prize structure for games that have the win all and multiplier features? Finally, I wish that the minimum multiplied amount on tickets $5.00 and up would be equal to the cost of the ticket. Nobody wants to get a 20,50 or 100x multiplier and reveal a $1.00 prize under it. I have found at least 7 20x tickets with $1.00 + 5 win all with $1.00 and it's ridiculous. If you're going to produce these types of tickets then start the prizes at larger amounts.NC Lottery
