NEWPORT, N.C. (WITN) – A North Carolina man is tens of thousands dollars richer after winning a portion of last Friday’s Mega Millions drawing.
David Burnette, of Newport, won $50,000 dollars following Friday’s drawing.
Burnette won after buying a Quick Pick ticket from the Handy Mart on Arendell Street in Morehead City.
Burnette’s $3 Megaplier ticket matched four of the white balls and the Mega Ball to win $10,000. It multiplied to $50,000 when the 5X Megaplier was drawn.
He says that he plans to use the winnings to repair damage that Hurricane Florence caused to his home.
