North Carolina lottery winner says his pencil picked the winning numbers for him
A person who gained the lottery in North Carolina says his pencil picked the winning quantity for him.
Samuel Manley, a college bus technician from Littleton, stopped at Bert Ammond Country Café in Pleasant Hill on July 29 and purchased a $1 Carolina Cash five price tag after telling his spouse he was once feeling fortunate, the lottery mentioned.
“I told her, ‘I’m going to buy the winning Cash 5 ticket’,” he mentioned, consistent with the lottery.
Instead of choosing numbers which might be particular to him like he normally does, he attempted a unique methodology this time, the lottery mentioned.
“I closed my eyes and let luck be my guide,” Manley mentioned, consistent with the lottery “I put the pencil down and wherever it landed, that’s the number I used.”
But he put the price tag in his pocket and forgot about it for two days, the lottery mentioned.
When he remembered and checked it, he could not imagine he had gained $160,595.
“I always keep stuff in my pocket and transfer it from shirt to shirt,” Manley mentioned, consistent with the lottery. “I can’t believe I was carrying around something worth that much money.”
Cash five is a “draw game that gives players the chance to win a jackpot every single night,” the lottery mentioned.
Manley mentioned he’ll pay expenses with a few of the cash and put the leisure in financial savings, consistent with the lottery.
