Zebulon Woman Celebrates $201,480 Lottery Win

Sandra High of Zebulon is celebrating after she won a $201,480 Cash 5 jackpot.

High’s good fortune happened when she stopped by the Scotchman on West Gannon Street in Zebulon and bought a Quick Pick ticket for Monday’s drawing.

She claimed the prize Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $142,046.

Cash 5 is a statewide draw game that gives players the chance to win a jackpot every single night.

A new version of the game began Sunday, which means starting jackpots are now $100,000. They will grow by at least $10,000 if no one wins.

Ticket sales from draw games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $650 million a year for education.
