Cabarrus County man says third lottery win is ‘unbelievable’

September 9, 2021 Posted by NC Lottery at 4:14 PM

Terry Splawn of Concord is no stranger to good luck. In fact, a Labor Day $100,000 win made Splawn a three-time winner of a big lottery prize.

“It’s unbelievable,” he said. “It certainly is fun to win.”

Splawn’s good luck first struck back in April 2017 when he bought a Millionaire Bucks ticket from Sam’s Mini Stop on Old Charlotte Road in Concord and won $1 million. Two years later, in March 2019, he bought a $150 Millio0n Cash Explosion scratch-off ticket from the same store and scored a second $1 million prize.

His third stroke of good luck came on Monday, when he purchased a $20 Premiere Cash ticket from the same Sam’s Mini Stop.

“It was on Labor Day!” he recalled. “So, it was a really nice surprise for the day.”

Splawn claimed his Premiere Cash prize on Wednesday and took home $70,756 after required federal and state tax withholdings.

Premiere Cash launched in August with four top prizes of $2 million and eight $100,000 prizes. Three top prizes and seven $100,000 prizes remain to be won.

I would definitely think somethings funny about it too but this guy spends thousands upon thousands of dollars on tickets.I know Sam and this guy and his wife always buy tons of tickets.You have to play Big to win Big I reckon and this story proves it!

Guy wins three major scratch off prizes at the SAME store in four years, ...lottery officials are like “ he sure is lucky, nothing to see here”. Did you do a double secret investigation after this win, too?

Congrats. Third win! It's amazing how this lottery system works. Putting top prizes in the same store every two years as if there is no other store in the area.

Tell me why all these winning tickets are in Charlotte and at the same stores with multiple wins. The stores i have played at in my area for years have never even had a big win.
