Wake County dad stopped for a Gatorade and left with a $100,000 prize

Rodney Harrington of Willow Spring walked into a store to grab a drink, added a scratch-off, and quenched his thirst with a $100,000 prize.

“I initially only went in the store to get a Gatorade,” he recalled.

Harrington said he went into shock when he saw how much he won.

“My mouth just dropped wide open,” he laughed.

He said the first thing he did was call his brother to tell him what happened.

“He knew I was being serious because he could hear it in my voice,” Harrington said.

Harrington bought his lucky 200X The Cash ticket from Cool Mart on Penny Road in Raleigh. He arrived at lottery headquarters Tuesday to claim his prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,259.

“I’ve got four daughters so I’m sure they will have some ideas how I should spend it,” he laughed.

The 200X The Cash game debuted in March 2022 with six top prizes of $5 million and 18 $100,000 prizes. Two $5 million prizes and two $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

Statistics show that most winning numbers are those selected in Quick-Pick; not so with NCEL. I learned long ago to select my QP numbers on separate tickets rather than all on the same ticket,because the so-called 'Random Number Generator' is crooked as a dog's hind leg! My last 5 draw ticket a couple of years ago had five rows of numbers with only one number different in each row! Now, NCEL has this Bonus Cash Promotion where if you buy 5 numbers (must be on same ticket), so I thought I'd give it a another chance ... wrong move. My five QP rows each had three duplicated numbers... how in sam-hill is someone supposed to even have a remote chance of winning anything when the odds are so stacked against them? (bty, I did win a dollar)

Hey NCEL...why do many of the same people keep winning the rewards and second chance drawings over and over again, when poor folks like me have hundreds and hundreds of entries and can't win anything substantial, it just isn't fair to read week after week these same stories about someone getting a scratch-off and winning big. I personally have spent much money and much time entering rewards and second chance to see these same people win. dis-heartening to say the least. Anyone else share this same feeling? NC Lottery
Winning in one drawing doesn't disqualify a player from having good luck again! The more entries a player makes, the more chances they have to win. Of course, having even ONE entry in a drawing gives you a chance to win!

Congratulations from Charlotte! :)

It's bad enough the ticket was found in Wake county, but being a dad and wanting a Gatorade are totally irrelevant to the story.
