A lucky man from Charlotte wins a big jackpot in scratch off lottery game
A Charlotte man, Bruce Tipton, said he had to take time to calm himself down after his $5 scratch-off won him $200,000.
“I was honestly too scared to drive,” Tipton said. “It took a while before I could stop shaking.”
Tipton, a 41-year-old construction worker, became the first winner of the top prize in the new $5 Carolina Jackpot game.
The $5 Carolina Jackpot game released six $200,000 prizes, five of them still unclaimed. “When I saw a lot of zeroes on there,” Tipton said, “I knew I won something big.”
He bought his winning lottery ticket from the Circle K on Freedom Drive in Charlotte.
Tipton collected his prize from lottery headquarters and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $142,021.
He said he would likely use his winnings to help his family members and possibly buy a house he could fix up.
