Donald Baynes, a site contractor from Sanford, tried his luck on a $30 scratch-off and scooped up a $100,000 prize.

Baynes claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and took home $70,759 after state and federal tax withholdings.

“I’m blessed and very fortunate to win something like this,” Baynes said. “I’m very grateful.”

He bought his lucky $300,000,000 Supreme Riches ticket at the Kangaroo Express on North Main Street in Broadway. The game launched in April 2019 with 15 $100,000 prizes. Four $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

Same here Charles H. I would rather match a number and win 20 dollars.

John A. I understand your frustration with this. I have found the 20X multiplier several times over the years and my best win so far has been $100. I have found $1.00 at least 7 times and it is definitely a huge let down. There are many players who have complained on the Facebook page about this, but they refuse to change things. If I win $20 by matching numbers that's fine, but winñing with a multiplier is nothing to get excited about. Granted, it's better than nothing. I watch scratch-off videos on youtube and some states don't mess with $1.00 on multipliers. I have said more than once that the minimum multiplied amount should be equal to the cost of the ticket. If you get a 20X on a $5.00 ticket it should be at least a $100 winner, not $20.

This morning on a 20x the money scratcher I scratched off 20x the money. It was a let down when it turned out to be 20x one dollar.
