A medical billing representative from Walstonburg in Greene County, plans to use the $100,000 prize she won on her High Roller ticket to pay for home improvements.
Lynette Fulford said, "I couldn't believe it. I was calm about it, but I didn't believe it. I'll believe it when I get the check in my hand."
Fulford received her check Monday, taking home $68,001 after taxes. She said her home improvement plans included a new front porch and replacement windows.
Fulford purchased her winning ticket at the Rite Aid on Stantonsburg Road in Greenville.
