DALLAS – There are a lot of new millionaires this week thanks to lottery tickets. Across New Mexico, North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania, and Texas, many $1 million lottery prizes have been won.
North Carolina Winners
Two gambling winners came out of Tar Heel State this week. Anthony Pinnix, a Burlington Man, purchased a $25 scratch-off ticket on his way to his bosses house and won the $1 million prize.
“It was a strong feeling in my gut,” said Pinnix, “that told me to get that ticket.”
The winning scratch-off ticket was purchased at a Rite Stop Market. Pinnix was with his boss when he scratched the ticket off and wounded up a big winner.
Pinnix took the lump sum. After state and federal taxes, Pinnix would take home $426,067.
Ronald Atteberry won his $1 million prize off of a $10 scratch-off ticket in Rowan county. He, like Pinnix, also took the lump sum and took home $425,012 after taxes.
In New Mexico, a $1 million prize was sold for the July 4 drawing. No one has claimed the prize as of yet. The winner has 90 days from the drawing date to claim the big prize.
In Dallas, the $1 million winning ticket was claimed by an unknown winner who chose to remain anonymous. The ticket was sold at an Elam Food Mart.
“The second-tier winning Quick Pick ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (11-13-18-30-37), but not the red Powerball number (16),” said the Texas Lottery.
Mega Millions Winners
Someone in Pennsylvania is sitting on a $1 million winning ticket through the Mega Millions but this has not yet been claimed. The Pennsylvania Lottery announced the winning numbers on July 1.
The ticket was sold at a Travers Food Market in Lansdowne. The market will gain a $5,000 bonus for being the location that sold the winning ticket.
A New York woman, Peggy Spear claimed her $1 million tickets for the Wednesday Mega Millions draw. Spear took the lump sum of $651,000.
