A North Carolina man had the chance to win three major prizes from scratch-offs, having bought each of those tickets from the same lottery retailer. This is why it's quite possible that Sam's Mini Stop located on Old Charlotte Road in Concord will be seeing a huge footfall from lottery players in the coming future.
Terry Splawn, the lucky winner is no stranger to good fortune. In April 2017, his lucky charm began to shine when he bought a ticket from the North Carolina Lottery's "Millionaire Bucks" instant game from Sam's Mini Stop and won a grand prize of $1 million.
Luckily he visited the same store two years later in March 2019 and purchased a "$150 Million Cash Explosion" ticket for $20, which again made him won another $1 million. But the third time, the Lady Luck shined all bright once again. The Concord resident picked a $20 "Premier Cash" ticket at Sam's Convenience Store and walked home with another grand lottery prize worth $100,000.
The three times lucky lottery winner, visited the Lottery Headquarters at Raleigh and claimed his prize, worth $70,756, after federal and state tax deductions.
Splawn won the first $100,000, second prize out of eight available in the "Premier Cash" game, which was launched in August. The second game "$150 Million Cash Explosion," that awarded him his second win has no second and third prizes of $1 million and $100,000 remaining, respectively, there is just one more top prize of $4 million, and numerous others worth $10,000 and below. Each of Splawn's wins took place two years apart. Though winning a lottery is totally random, who knows you make the next headlines and win a grand prize picking the right lottery numbers.
