Nash County man will take care of his family with $1 million win

Rocky Mount resident Willie Pridgen Jr. said his children will benefit the most after he won a $1 million scratch-off prize.

“I want to invest the money and leave it to my children,” Pridgen said, “so they can have a better life than I had.”

Pridgen bought his lucky $10 Red Hot Millions ticket from Tony’s Tobacco Shop on West Mount Drive in Nashville.

“I was amazed and overwhelmed,” he recalled. “This is a one-in-a-million deal.”

When Pridgen arrived at lottery headquarters, he had a decision to make. He could choose to receive the prize as an annuity of $50,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump sum of $600,000 and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $427,503.

“My family is really going to benefit from this,” he said.

Red Hot Millions debuted in September with four $1 million prizes. Two $1 million prizes remain to be claimed.

A $10 million lottery-funded grant helped Nash County build the new Red Oak Elementary School. For details on other ways Nash County benefits from lottery funds, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.

@Vilasack R - Agreed. Take note of the big winners for one month and you will see 3/4 of them are from small towns and most of these towns aren't near large cities like Charlotte.

You can view past winning numbers ,but not past years. There is NO WINNING NUMBERS TO LOOK UP. please put it back on P3/p4. Why was the change necessary???????NC Lottery
Hey there, Darlene! Under the "Past Draws" section on the games page, you can click through the pages at the top to go back to different months and years and see the numbers you're interested in seeing.

I feel if you are a regular online customer you should have more chances of winning if it's not but $10NC Lottery
Hey there, Debra! A lottery ticket is "blind" - it doesn't know who bought it! Every ticket has the exact same odds of being a lucky winner for everyone who plays - it has to be that way to be fair for all of our players. :)

Really…Vilasack R.???? Charlotte and her surrounding areas win ALL the time. Charlotte Greensboro and their surrounding towns including the “boonies” have alot of big winners. In fact they probably make up a large part of ticket sales. Keep your eye on this website and you will see.

11/14/2023 10:17 - Vilaysack R.

Charlotte people never win, seems you have to go to small town or the boonies to have a chance.

New app update is terrible!! Winning numbers don't appear half the time unless you go under game info & u can't choose somonth year for past draws. Now you gotta keep pressing a number until you get there which takes forever.

Congratulations :)

ncel. why change the past site?Makes h b a makes it harder to look at past numbers. REALLYNC Lottery
Hi, Shirley! We're sorry about that! You can view past draw numbers on each game's page, or through the "Winning Numbers" tab on the site or app.

Maybe new Escalade Duramax

11/14/2023 02:20 - James R.

I'd probably take the annuity.

11/14/2023 02:18 - James R.

I would get my plastic surgery on my belly, pay off my debts, fix my car up, get married, get new furniture and clothes, get extra household and personal care stuff in bulk, and buy Courtney a new van... pay Josephine's SUV off... then give some to my Mom Dad & Sister... if there's any left after that hmu lol probably try to save the rest... maybe buy a house outright in cash right away ;)
