Carteret County Man Wins $750,000 In State Lottery

A Carteret County man says he will save for his daughter's college and invest for the future after winning $750,000.

Jamie Godfrey of Salter Path scratched off the lucky $10 lottery ticket at the Kangaroo Express on East Fort Macon Road in Atlantic Beach a week ago.

"I was scratching the ticket and it was like time stopped," Godfrey said. "It was a heart-dropping moment, just a life-changing thing. I asked the clerk to scan it for me and she told me I had to claim my prize at the lottery office. Then she gave me a high five."

After state and federal taxes, Godfrey received a check for $519,003.
