If you manage that, consider yourself lucky.

Most spend $200K to win $100K!

    I agree! I find it hard to believe when people win, they claim it was their first time playing.  In recent years with the lottery jackpots escalating above $400m.  Most people will at least spend $1 or do an office pool.

      they sure took out a lot of taxes31,000 , I though that taxes was 7% on a dollar, oh" I forgot they go by the color of your skin.

      For a NC resident you seem woefully unaware thats Govenor McCrory lowered our tax rate.  Has nothing to so with who you are or what you are.  We are all equal under the new tax rate.

        It's usually the first timers who hit it big and I seriously doubt she's lying because she doesn't even look like she plays all the time.

         

        Anyway Congratulations.

          I don't understand the comment about she doesn't even look like she plays all the time. What are you suppose to look like if you pay all the time? Is there a certain look you have when you play all the time?

            I didn't realize those who play the lottery have a certain look. Do first time lottery winners who never played before have a certain look as well?

                Well, I can't speak for anybody else, but as for me, it's the look of discouragement.  <grin>

                  Sounds like a lady with a plan.

                  If she graduates from a nursing school with no student debt, she will be well on her way to a secure future, unless she is foolish with her money.

                  Best wishes to her!

                  Cheers

                    The federal government takes 25% of the winnings, regardless of your skin color, and the state of North Carolina has no control over that. Roll Eyes

                      Some may spend $200k and not even win $10k.

                        North Carolina Education Lottery officials say a Greensboro woman played the lottery for the first time and won big.

                        Jamiela Hardick told officials she wanted to try her luck Monday with two lottery tickets. She won $5 on one and $100,000 on the other.

                        She said she bought a $5 Crossword 10K ticket and a $5 Mega Bucks ticket at the Sheetz on West Wendover Avenue in Greensboro. She won her $5 back on the Crossword 10K ticket and the top prize of the Mega Bucks game.

                        After taxes were withheld, Hardrick, 21, received a check for $69,201. She said she plans to use her prize money to help pay her way to college where she plans to study nursing.

                        As of Thursday, six more $100,000 top prizes remain to be claimed in the Mega Bucks game.
