— The holidays aren’t over yet for Keith Goodman Jr. of Fayetteville, who won the top prize Sunday in a North Carolina Education Lottery holiday-themed game.

Goodman’s luck happened when he purchased a $5 Season's Gold ticket at a Fast Mart on Cliffdale Road. He claimed the $150,000 prize Monday, and after federal and state tax withholdings, he took home a check for $104,253.

Season’s Gold was one of five holiday-themed games that began in November. Two top prizes of $150,000 remain to be claimed in the game.
