Erick Lopez, a construction worker from Sneads Ferry in Onslow County, North Carolina, plans to use the $100,000 prize he won playing the N.C. Lottery’s Wheel of Fortune game to travel and invest for the future.
Lopez scratched off the lucky ticket at home.
That’s a lot of zeroes, Lopez recalled thinking the moment he scratched the ticket. Lopez received a check for $68,001 after taxes were withheld.
This feels good, Lopez said as he held his check for the first time. It’s starting to sink in now.
And when it does…..
You’re gonna feel real, real good.
