Posted April 12, 2013
Lumberton, N.C. — A construction supervisor from Lumberton claimed the last of five $100,000 prizes Friday in the Super Lucky 7’s scratch-off game, lottery officials said.
Charles Byrd and his wife said they plan to use the money to renovate their kitchen and take a vacation.
Byrd scratched off the ticket at the Minuteman Food Mart on East Fifth Street in Lumberton.
“I started scratching it and I had to sit down right there on the ice cream counter,” Byrd said in a statement. “It took me a few minutes to register that I actually won it. Once I calmed myself down, I signed it and said, ‘I won $100,000.’”
After state and federal taxes were withheld, Byrd received a check for $68,000.
