Lotto player living the dream after big win

9th September 2020 7:02am

A lotto player from North Carolina is literally living the dream after winning $100,000 on a Gold Rush scratch-off ticket she purchased for $20.

Kaila Moore of Durham who had previously never played the lottery decided to take a chance on the game after dreaming that she had bought a winning ticket.

"I've never bought a lottery ticket ever in my entire life," she said. "I literally had a dream that I bought a scratch-off. So, when I woke up, I went and bought one."

"I was with my mom, she was more excited about it than me!"

The young winners' dreams are now made of going to medical school, investing and saving for her future.

"I plan to go to medical school, and medical school is not cheap!" she went on to say. "I'm going to invest some of it in a mutual fund and the rest I'm going to save."

Dream big dreams

After collecting her after-tax prize of $70,756 from the North Carolina Education Lottery headquarters in Raleigh on Wednesday Moore must now be pinching herself to check if it is all one big dream or real! 

A lottery official has since confirmed there are three of six second-tier prizes of $100,000 remaining in the $4,000,000 Gold Rush instant game and two of three top prizes of $4,000,000 left to claim.
