RALEIGH, N.C. (WECT) – A Riegelwood man recently won $250,000 on a $5 scratch-off ticket.
Richard Bryant stopped at the Scotchman on Old Stage Road in Riegelwood, bought a 20X The Cash ticket, and instantly scratched off the top prize.
He claimed his prize Tuesday in Raleigh. He is taking home $176,876, after required federal and state tax withholdings.
“Ticket sales from scratch-off games such as 20X The Cash make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million a year for education,” the N.C. Education Lottery stated in a news release.
