A woman’s $5 lottery ticket won her a six-figure jackpot which she now plans to use to help her family, North Carolina lottery officials said.
Celma Marshal purchased a Mystery Prize Cashword scratch prize at 365 Fast Mart on Bunce Road in Fayetteville, according to a press release from the North Carolina Education Lottery. He turned out to be the last of the game’s six $150,000 winners.
“I never thought I would win something like this in my life,” Marshall told lottery officials. “I really want to help my family now.”
She won over $106,000 on Thursday, September 15, after required taxes.
“I’m so happy I can’t even believe it,” Marshall said, according to the lottery. “I try not to cry.”
Fayetteville is about 65 miles south of Raleigh.
