Pitt County grandmother uses grandchildren’s birthdays to win $569,347 jackpot

July 8, 2024 Posted by NC Lottery at 3:46 PM

A family vacation led Winterville resident Claudette Cox to play her grandchildren’s birthdays as her Cash 5 numbers, a decision that led to a $569,347 jackpot win.

“We had just gone on vacation together as a family and had such a great time so I just decided to use their birthdays for my numbers,” she said.

Cox bought her $1 ticket for the June 15 drawing from the Harris Teeter on East Fire Tower Road in Greenville. She watched the Cash 5 drawing live to see if she won.

“I started to run around the house,” she recalled. “I was like pinching myself because I couldn’t believe it was really happening to me.”

Cox claimed her prize at lottery headquarters Monday in Raleigh and, after required federal and state tax withholdings, took home $407,084.

She said she has not decided how to spend the winnings aside from putting some in the bank.

Cash 5 is one of six lottery games in North Carolina where players have the option of buying their tickets at a retail location or with Online Play through the lottery’s website or with the NC Lottery Official Mobile App. Monday’s jackpot is $242,000.

Wow! What luck, been play my special pick numbers and haven't won big on them yet. Cash5 had 3 numbers right on bonus play last night! I didn't play them on cash 5, instead I played them on LFL. I could have won 12.oo dollars. That's the way the cookie crumble. Better luck tomorrow.NC Lottery
Wishing you lots of good luck, Roger!
