Building a Nest Egg: North Carolina Construction Worker Wins $100,000


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.
