Steve Wilson of Mount Holly, North Carolina couldn’t believe it. No, really – he couldn’t believe it.
Wednesday night he saw the winning numbers show up on his television screen while watching the news. He also read the numbers in the newspaper the next day. He still wasn’t convinced.
Finally, he logged on to the NC Lottery website and read those same numbers. Yes, they were the numbers on his ticket. And his ticket was worth $600,000.
Normally, those numbers would be worth only (only) $200,000.
