The North Carolina Education Lottery has reported a six-figure jackpot win by a Wayne County man.
Kerry Williams, of Eureka, tried his luck on a $2 Fast Play ticket and won a $144,910 jackpot.
Williams bought his lucky 10X The Cash ticket Thursday night, February 16, 2023 at Moe’s Food Mart on N.C. 222 East in Fremont. He collected his prize Friday and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $103,249.
The Fast Play rolling jackpot grows with every ticket purchased. When Williams made his purchase, it had just reached $724,550. Because he bought a $2 ticket, he won 20 percent of the jackpot.
