$491,451 jackpot will go toward Fayetteville woman’s retirement

January 30, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:53 PM

A $1 lottery ticket will go a long way toward helping Fayetteville resident Teresa Logan and her husband retire after it became a $491,451 Cash 5 jackpot.

“We’ve just been soaking it all in,” she said.

Logan, 60, bought her lucky Quick Pick ticket using Online Play.

“Me and my husband like to play Cash 5 on our phones,” Logan said. “He told me that night, ‘Don’t forget to play your Cash 5.’”

Logan matched all five white balls Wednesday’s drawing to win the jackpot.

“I logged into my account and saw the amount flash on my phone,” she said. “I told my husband, ‘Honey, we won, we won.’”

Logan arrived at lottery headquarters Monday to collect her prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $350,160.

She said she plans to use her winnings for their retirement and to do some home renovations.

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.

The odds of winning a Cash 5 jackpot are 1 in 962,598. Monday’s jackpot is $110,000.
