Lottery player tracks down $5m Scratch Off ticket

6th August 2020 6:02am

A savvy North Carolina man made it his mission to track down one remaining $5 million top prize on the $5,000,000 Mega Cash scratch-off game and succeeded.

After realising that there was only one top prize left in circulation Kevin Clark, of Candler made what turns out to be a smart investment. 

He spent four hours visiting 40 stores purchasing every $20 ticket he could find until his persistence paid off at the Stop N Go convenience store at a gas station on U.S. 70 in Swannanoa where he purchased the winning ticket.

"I had a real good feeling it was going to be in the western part of the state," Clark explained. "I scanned it with my phone, and it told me to go see a retailer. So, I scratched it off, and when I scratched it off, I couldn't believe it. I started shaking. And then I cried."

Clark who has gone from working a small-scale gardening business to being a multi-millionaire overnight says he put in the research and now plans to invest the money in real estate.

"I'm a simple man, and I mow grass," he told the lottery. "but I've always been interested in real estate, so my biggest plans with the majority of the money is to invest in real estate and some small businesses."
