Jacksonville Woman Wins $855,949 In Carolina Cash 5

A Jacksonville woman won $855,949 after matching all five numbers in last night's Carolina Cash 5 drawing.

Dorothy Bundy plans to check off some things on her "bucket list", including making a trip to Disney World, going whitewater rafting and taking a cruise to the Bahamas.

Bundy has been playing the same random set of numbers in the Cash 5 game for six years, believing that her numbers would eventually be drawn.

"I was in total shock," Bundy said after calling the lottery player helpline to check the winning numbers. "I called back three more times just to make sure I wasn't hearing things. I feel like I'm dreaming and I'm afraid to wake up."

The woman gets $582,045 after state and federal taxes are withheld.

She purchased her ticket at the Food Lion on Piney Green Road.
