$1 million Jumbo Bucks prize makes for second million-dollar win for Randolph County man

Max Bouldin of Trinity tried his luck on a new $10 ticket and won his second $1 million lottery prize.

“I’m just shocked,” he said as he claimed his Jumbo Bucks prize Thursday at lottery headquarters. “I’m in awe. This is a one in a million chance.”

Back in July of 2018, Bouldin won $1 million on an Extreme Millions ticket. He purchased his latest lucky ticket from the Trindale Mini Mart on N.C. 62 in Trinity.

“I feel so blessed,” said Bouldin. “By winning this one here, it is definitely a blessing.”

He had the choice of taking the $1 million as an annuity of 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a lump sum of $600,000. Bouldin opted for the lump sum of $600,000 and took home $424,503 after required state and federal tax withholdings.

“I’m very grateful,” he said. “I just can’t believe this.”

Jumbo Bucks launched this month with eight top prizes of $1 million. Five top prizes remain to be won.

Educate yourself people. He ia not being taxed 600k. The prize is not 1 million if yyou take lump sum. Its 600k minus taxes. To get the million dollar payment you must take the annuity over 20 years. Its the only state that I seen that hides the prize money this way. Every other state I have been too, the jackpot prize that is mentioned is for both lump sum and annuity. Thats why in NC anything under 1 million you receive that payout listed no matter how its received. Its a trick to make it seem like higher prize money. Stick with $5 cards and you have a shot at nearly the same dollar amounts.

Congratulations! I've been playing for years and never won over $10. Winning a million dollars twice is somewhat of a miracle. And it's not just people winning in high populated areas. I live in a small town and there is a man who has won a huge amount off a scratch off and then a year or two later he scratched off a million dollar ticket and he bought the ticket from an old country store in the middle of nowhere. There's just those people who have that kind of luck. Again, congratulations.

Congratulations to you and I wish you many more wonderful wins.

I feel the same way about where all the winners seem to be towards Raleigh. They know where the winning tickets are distributed. Send some to Brunswick CountyNC Lottery
Hi Donna, I appreciate your concern. We don’t know where the winning tickets will be and it is no easier to win the lottery in once place over another. The triangle and triad are simply highly populated and have more people playing the lottery. If you live in these areas it is not easier to win. No matter where you live you have the same chance to beat the odds as anyone else.

It's a disgrace how much one is taxed after winning a million dollars.

Hey. I commented 3 days ago on Forsyth County million dollar winner and it’s still not posted.?! It would be just great if you put it on homepage for players to see and hear what your ( Honest ) answers are. Thanks ??

Hello NCEL. Can you confirm the total entries for the Rainy Day promotion? Thanks.NC Lottery
Hi Herman, as of the most recent report there were 6,780,223 entries for Rainy Day Fund. Good luck!

@ncel Carolina Black is the WORST card to scratch and the WORST card to win on. Please don't ever make a card like this again. A waste of time and money....

Congratulations! What a Blessing! Invest it wisely. I do think it a damned shame to "win" 1million dollars, and when all is said and done- after state and federal taxes-taxes you're left with less than half a million $500,000!!

Awesome god is good

I know this guy ,He buys lots of tickets about every day at different stores, also A little over 400,000 take home money out of a million is not real good , of course I would like to have that money

Congrats! I wish you would pass this comment to the board - people win all around us, Raleigh, Charlotte, Bailey, Rocky Mount but no Wilson. I’m talking about the big money not the recent win of 10 thousand. Luck is not the factor here and yes I enjoy playing but some results would be nice for other areas as well.

Maybe the NC Lottery Commision should start to concentrate on balancing out the demographic winning instead of spending money on commercials that don't need to be ran.NC Lottery
Hi Sean, I understand your concern. 95 cents out of every dollar spent on a lottery ticket is returned to the state in the form of prizes, commissions and earnings for education. Less than 4% of our revenue is spent on administrative expenses, and that includes advertising.

some ppl just never won anything more than 500 like me, some ppl just won 2 top prizes within couple years...

REAL FISHY TO ME!!!

How is this even possible? This isn't the first time this has happened. Same people, same location isn't a coincidence.

5/01/2021 09:15 - Margaret G.

It really amazes me how the same people win multiple top prizes on scratch offs. This is because the top prize tickets are distributed in the same area over and over. I have read about theses multiple time winners quite often. Before it’s said NO I don’t believe in coincidences.

Congratulations on your second big win

It's darn funny to me that he's won a million twice and the best I've done is $1,000 twice.

what a blessing

Congratulations

Nice Win but the Lottery just cost you over a 100k by making this a million dollar ticket! They should of left it 750k and you would have took home over half a million dollars. #PaythePlayers

Never have a big winner in the western part of the state. At least no big winners. It would be nice if Cherokee County or clay or Macon could have a few winners from time to time. One million dollar winner when lottery first started and no more. The big tickets are always between Charlotte and Raleigh

CONGRATULATIONS

Spread some of that lick around. But congratulations also. Luck was on your side!!!

Congratulations to him. It seems like all the winning tickets are placed in highly populated areas. No one from the smaller towns have wins... I guess I gotta travel to one of these areas to try my luck
