Anhthu Thi Ngo, is extremely happy to receive a $100,000 prize by playing the Super Lucky 7’s scratch-off game. A resident of Carrboro in Orange County and a fan of scratcher tickets, she bought her winning ticket at Key Food Mart on West Rosemary Street in Chapel Hill.
“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Ngo said. “My whole body froze and I couldn’t talk. I’m very happy and I’m very appreciative of the lottery for giving me the chance to win.” National lottery
Ngo took home a total $68,001 after state and federal taxes were deducted. She has no immediate plans for this windfall and will consider her options carefully.
And the Doubling Promotion Keeps on Rolling
Michael O’Donnell’s is a great fan of scratcher tickets, in fact he has his favorite game and it is called “Hoards of 100’s”. And this game surely resulted in hoards of 100’s for Michael as one of his scratch-off tickets revealed a top-prize of $5,500. But that was not all, thanks to a promotion that is running currently he will receive $11,000 instead of the initial $5,500.
Mr. O’Donnell enjoys all of the Lottery’s $2 scratch games, but Hoards of 100’s is the one he looks for and prefers because he has had very positive experiences with it. “It has been very lucky for me.” The 59-year-old Verizon employee has a very special way to scratch his lottery tickets, he scratches them from the bottom to the top, and a ritual that he believes brings him good luck. The last number he scratched was the one he needed to win the game’s $5,500 top prize. It wasn’t until the next day, however, that he realized that a Lottery promotion, which doubles all $2 instant ticket top prizes through July 31, would convert his $5,500 prize into an $11,000 win.
O’Donnell’s birthday is this month and the win certainly marks a very fortunate and lucky phase in his life. As for the plans of this doubly lucky win, he has none other than putting it into his bank account.
