A bit of serendipity wins Iredell County man a $218,613 Cash 5 jackpot

If David Lewandowski of Mooresville hadn’t messed up the first time he tried to buy his Cash 5 ticket, he never would have won Monday’s $218,613 jackpot.

Lewandowski’s first try to get a Cash 5 ticket came on Sunday when he attempted to buy a Cash 5 ticket and win a $169,000 jackpot.

“I didn’t complete the purchase until the next day,” said Lewandowski. “If I had paid attention and did it right the first time, I wouldn’t have won.

His win occurred in Monday’s Cash 5 drawing after Lewandowski completed his purchase, got his ticket with a set of random numbers he had picked himself into the drawing, and matched all five winning numbers to take home the larger jackpot of $218,613.

He claimed his prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters. After required federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $155,762.

Lewandowski, the owner of a window tinting business, plans to put a down payment on a condo in Puerto Rico with his winnings.

Cash 5 is one of six lottery games in North Carolina, including the newly added Pick 3 and Pick 4, 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. Wednesday’s jackpot is $110,000.

I'd like an explanation as to exactly how he messed up. Did he attempt to buy a ticket on Sunday and it was too late and carried over to Monday or did he do something wrong and just waited till Monday to buy the ticket? If he picked the winning numbers to play on Sunday and they hit the next day then something doesn't seem right about it. I refuse to believe that the same set of numbers he intended to play on Sunday hit on Monday because of an alleged mistake.NC Lottery
Hi there, Charles! The winner used Quick Pick and meant to purchase a ticket on Sunday, but didn't complete the purchase on his end until Monday - which is very lucky, since he hit the jackpot!
