Wake County man cried after finding out about $100,000 win

November 8, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 9:17 AM

Knightdale resident Darrell Seawell had no idea how much he won when he arrived at lottery headquarters Tuesday, and he got emotional when he heard he won a $100,000 prize.

“I’m 69 years old and If you’ve never seen an old man cry, I cried,” Seawell said. “It’s a blessing.”

The next thing Seawell did was take out his phone and call his wife, Evelyn.

“He likes to joke around a lot so when he first told me I said, ‘Stop playing,’” she said. “But then I heard him crying and I knew he wasn’t joking.”

Seawell bought his lucky $5,000,000 Ultimate ticket from Mack’s Mart on Knightdale Boulevard in Knightdale.

He arrived Tuesday afternoon to claim his prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,259.

Seawell said he plans to put his winnings in the bank.

The $5,000,000 Ultimate game debuted in March with five $5 million top prizes and 15 $100,000 prizes. Three $5 million prizes and seven $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

The second chance drawing is a joke. Don’t enter any more tickets into their drawings. It’s just a way to get you to spend more money. Odds are one in several million. The one that wins is probably gonna be from Raleigh. My guess is it is corrupt

"Snoop" as they called him at the store is hilarious! I came across him last Saturday night at N&A Food Martin in Knightdale when I stopped to get a few tickets. He had jokes with others at the store who wanted to see how well he was going to do with the many Black Titanium scratch-offs he purchased. Congratulations!

Seems strange he went to headquarters not knowing how much he won its clearly wrote on it and you can scan tickets now every where Congratulations to you both and congratulations to Wake county again for another win

Congratulations! I just don't know why when lottery accumulate to Millions and Billions have to be given to one single winner. Lottery should have a better percentage distribuition prize, prizes should be distribuited better and more people will buy more.

Congratulations to the Seawells! ????

People grossly underestimate how many entries aare received for drawings. I had 13,500 for 220 winners of $5,000 and won nothing but I didn't really expect to. I'm sure 13,500 is nothing compared to the amount of entries received.

11/08/2023 02:23 - George J.

289 entry’s for the 3 winners of $20,000.00 and zip, think I’m done for awhile. Not one red cent! Congratulations to you boss!

I have been playing 2nd chance for the last seven years and unfortunately never one anything. Sometimes I wonder why? after 42,139 points history I will not give up as long as I have the will to play.
