Mecklenburg County mom wins $25,000 a year for life: ‘I knew it was coming’

Asiiat Urusova of Huntersville felt a big lottery win approaching and a $2 Lucky for Life ticket delivered, winning her a $25,000 a year for life prize.

“I just had that feeling,” Urusova said. “I knew it was coming.”

Urusova bought her lucky ticket for the March 28 drawing using Online Play on the NC Lottery Official Mobile App. She won her prize by matching all five white balls in the drawing.

“My heart was beating so quickly,” she recalled. “I never felt that feeling before.”

Urusova, a mother of four, said she had to tell her husband the good news right away.

“I called my husband and woke him up,” Urusova laughed. “I think he was afraid something was wrong.”

She claimed her prize at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and had the choice of receiving $25,000 a year for the rest of her life or a $390,000 lump sum. She chose the $390,000 lump sum and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $278,857.

Urusova said she plans to pay some bills and possibly buy a Toyota Prius.

Lucky for Life is one of six lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets through a retail location or Online Play. Lucky for Life drawings are held every night. The odds of winning the $25,000 a year for life prize are 1 in 1.8 million.
