After winning the largest Fast Play jackpot in history, James Davis and Marsha Camp of Davis said they plan to build a house with the $1,120,665 prize.

“This is going to change our life,” Camp said.

The couple purchased the $20 100X The Cash ticket Saturday morning from Handy House #2 on U.S. 70 in Smyrna in Carteret County. Camp works at the store but was not working when she bought the ticket.

“I guess that’s just the luck isn’t it,” Camp said. “We are so happy.”

At the time of the purchase, the jackpot stood at $920,665. Since it was a $20 ticket, Camp and Davis received 100% of the $920,665 jackpot plus $200,000 cash.

“We can build our house now,” Camp said. “This is amazing.”

The previous high for a Fast Play jackpot win was $691,417 in November of 2020. The odds of winning a Fast Play jackpot are 1 in 320,000.

Camp and Davis claimed their winnings Thursday. Each player received $560,333 and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, each took home $399,240.

Fast Play features an instantly growing jackpot that increases with every ticket sold until it is won. As of Friday afternoon, the Fast Play jackpot stands at $59,000 and counting.

It's not against the lottery rules in NC to play the lottery. Only people that can't play the lottery are people who are employed by the NCEL themselves and their family members

“I guess that’s just the luck isn’t it,” Camp said. as she said tongue in cheek, lol

So the winner works at the store where she bought the ticket. This seems to be a big conflict and not the first time this has happened in the NC Lottery.

Umm ?? “They Split the Jackpot and Build a Home together, but take separate checks” Not for me to understand that one. Smh “ But Congratulations on your Winnings ???? and Separate Rooms”.

It doesn't matter whether she was working at the time or not. Any owner or employee of any store that sells tickets should not be allowed to purchase from the one they work at. If she had bought the ticket at another location I would have no issue with it, but they both should have been immediately disqualified.
