"Mega Bucks" Lottery Ticket Turns Into Just That For Beaufort County Woman

A Beaufort County woman won a big cash prize recently in the NC Lottery.

Hilda Martinez won the $100,000 prize playing the five dollar "Mega Bucks" ticket at the Family Country Store on Cherry Run Road in Washington.

After state and federal taxes, Martinez received a check for $68,000.

She plans on using the money to take a vacation to Florida later this year and to buy her oldest daughter a new car.
