December 1, 2021 Posted by NC Lottery at 10:41 AM

Charles Collier III of Charlotte tried his luck on a $5 Fast Play ticket and won a $126,722 lottery prize.

Collier bought his lucky $5 Blackjack ticket from the Harris Teeter on Carmel Road in Charlotte for the Nov. 26 drawing.

He claimed his prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.  After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $89,657.

Fast Play’s rolling, progressive jackpot increases with every ticket sold until it is won. A $5 ticket, like Blackjack, receives 50 percent of the jackpot amount. The odds of winning a Fast Play jackpot are 1 in 240,000.

Players can see if they have won and how much instantly with Fast Play. Printed on each ticket is the amount of the jackpot when the ticket is sold and how much of that jackpot the ticket could win. Players can also win instant cash prizes on their Fast Play tickets.

Congrats to another Charlotte winner!!! To all those that think otherwise Charlotte IS the biggest city in NC. Almost twice as big as #2 Raleigh, Population & Area (sq miles). And almost 3 times as big as the next 4, Greensboro, Durham, Winston-Salem and Fayetteville. Just google "biggest cities in NC", you will see the top 10. Asheville is #10. Charlotte no doubt has the most places that sell tickets, so no doubt they will have more players, more winners and more losers.
