New Bern man can remodel his home after $100,000 win

December 13, 2022 Posted by NC Lottery at 1:58 PM

At halftime of the Pittsburgh Steelers game Sunday, Lyncurgus Williams of New Bern decided he needed some sides for a game day meal so he stopped at the store, bought a scratch-off ticket, and scored a $100,000 lottery prize.

“I scratched it off right in the store,” Williams said. “I was ecstatic.”

Williams said he only stopped at the Harris Teeter on MLK Boulevard in New Bern to pick up sides. Then he noticed only one $30 Fabulous Fortune ticket for sale so he bought it.

“I was so excited I didn’t even get my sides,” he laughed.

Williams collected his prize at lottery headquarters Tuesday and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,019.

“Now I can remodel my house,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to do that for a very long time.”

Fabulous Fortune debuted in July with six $3 million prizes and 18 $100,000 prizes. One $3 million top prize and eight $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

I think the next time I go into a store, I will be looking and asking do they have any one ticket left in the bin. If they do, I'm getting it. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!

The lottery never reorder tickets the first few years! It’s a way to sell up the rest of the losing tickets out there! It’s wrong plain and simple. Pick up the cards when the prizes are won or almost won. Do the right thing NC Lottery.

Why onthe diamond dazzler Did you add more prizes when it was almost over and was guaranteed someone to win it soonNC Lottery
Hi, Damian! We re-order popular games from time to time to give more players a chance to win and to put more prizes in circulation to be won! If a game is re-ordered, the odds of winning remain the same and all of our games undergo a post-game audit to ensure this.
