Charlotte Man Wins $100,000 in Scratch-off Lottery Game
RALEIGH, N.C.-- A Charlotte man was celebrating this weekend after winning $100,000 in a new scratch-off game.
Brad Simmons purchased his $4,000,000 Gold Bullion scratch-off ticket at the PC Mart on The Plaza Friday morning, ten minutes after learning about the game.
"It was a very surreal moment," Simmons said while collecting his prize money at lottery headquarters Tuesday. His winnings amount to $68,006 after taxes.
The $4,000,000 Gold Bullion game started Feb. 12 with three top prizes of $4 million and seven prizes of $1 million. Players who win the game’s top prize have the option of claiming it as a 20-year annuity or a lump sum option that can be claimed in either cash or gold bullion.
Simmons says he is still considering what he will do with his winnings.
