Greenville Man's Quick Pick Wins For $520,000

By  | 

The Greenville convenience store that sold a winning $57 million Mega Millions ticket has helped with another retirement plan.

The N.C. Education Lottery says Ashby Jordan of Greenville purchased a Quick Pick ticket which was one of three that matched all five numbers in the Aug. 8 drawing to split the $520,734 jackpot.

Jordan says he plans to use the $120,117 jackpot he won playing Carolina Cash 5 to save for retirement and take a vacation.

In Charlotte, Karen Witherspoon became the first player to win $100,000 in the new $1,000,000 Jackpot game. After state and federal taxes were withheld, Witherspoon took home $69,203.

As of Monday, six $1 million top prizes and four more $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed in the game.
