Bailey bought her Quick Pick ticket for the April 29 drawing from the Food Lion on West Cornelius Harnett Boulevard where she works. The purchase occurred during a visit to the store while Bailey was not working.

She arrived at lottery headquarters Tuesday to collect her prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $592,873.

Cash 5 is one of four lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets through a retail location or Online Play, either through the lottery’s website or with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App. Cash 5 tickets are $1 and drawings are held every night.

Wednesday’s jackpot is $394,000. The odds of winning a Cash 5 jackpot are 1 in 962,598.
