A North Carolina man won $100,000 in the Carolina Keno lottery game, his second-largest lottery prise in seven years.
Dewey Croom, of Marion, told North Carolina Education Lottery officials he bought his Carolina Keno ticket from the Sugar Hill Food Mart in Marion on Sunday, but he didn’t check the results right away.
“I went in to check my ticket the next day,” Croom said. “I didn’t know until Monday that I had won on the Sunday draw!”
Croom is no stranger to large lottery payouts; he previously won a $121,790 jackpot in the Cash 5 drawing on December 16, 2014.
The winner stated that his latest windfall will be used to pay off his pickup truck, and that he plans to “put the rest of it in the bank and maybe take a vacation.”
