Husband reminded his wife to play NC lottery game on her phone. Now, they can retire
Teresa Logan and her husband play the lottery on their phones often.
Recently, the Fayetteville, North Carolina, couple was together when Logan’s husband gave her a reminder: ‘Don’t forget to play your Cash 5,’ according to a Jan. 30 news release from lottery officials.
So, Logan, 60, bought herself a $1 Quick Pick ticket online. Her numbers matched all five balls in the next drawing, winning her the jackpot, officials said.
“I logged into my account and saw the amount flash on my phone,” Logan told officials. “I told my husband, ‘Honey, we won, we won.’”
After tax withholding, Logan took home $350,160. She said she plans to use her winnings to retire and do some home renovations.
“We’ve just been soaking it all in,” Logan told officials.
Fayetteville is about 140 miles east of Charlotte.
