Greenville man will buy his mom a house after $518,774 jackpot win

June 15, 2023 Posted by NC Lottery at 2:42 PM

Randy Williams of Greenville woke up in the middle of the night on Wednesday, checked his Cash 5 numbers, and saw a $518,774 jackpot waiting for him.

“I’m going to buy my mom a house,” Williams said. “She’s very happy.”

Williams, 48, said he couldn’t contain his excitement when he saw the amount he won.

“I just ran through the house hollering,” he said. “I woke my mom up.”

Williams said he told his mom right away after he won.

“She was jumping up and down,” he said. “She was so excited.”

Williams bought the $1 Quick Pick ticket in Wednesday’s drawing using Online Play on the lottery’s website.

“I always knew I was going to win,” Williams said. “It was just a gut feeling.”

He arrived at lottery headquarters Thursday to collect his prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $369,627.

Cash 5 is one of six lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets through a retail location or with Online Play. The odds of winning a Cash 5 jackpot are 1 in 962,598. Thursday’s jackpot is $100,000.

The ability to make a Cash 5 purchase online a double play is NOT available. The only checkbox is for auto renew. Please investigate this discrepancy.NC Lottery

I'm sorry Mr. administrator guy but Kenneth A is right, we cant add double play to cash 5. You all better check this because I just tried it twice again and it does not give the option anywhere.NC Lottery
Hi, Andrew! You're right - we're sorry for any confusion. The previous comment has been edited with the correct info - Double Play and EZ Match are only available as add-ons for Cash 5 purchases made at retailers. Sorry again for any confusion, and thanks for catching that!

Why don't they have a double play option online for the Cash 5 NC Lottery
Hi there, Kenneth! Apologies for the confusion - Double Play and EZ Match are only available as add-ons for in-store purchases of Cash 5, they are not available through Online Play at this time. We hope to be able to offer this option online for our players in the future, though!
