A Lillington woman is celebrating this week, as she won $100,000 in a North Carolina Education Lottery second-chance drawing.

It’s the second time this week someone from our listening area has won a big jackpot. Patti Pilat of Sanford won $250,000 on a scratch-off ticket earlier this week.

Susan Cummings of Lillington won in the Multiple The Cash second-chance lottery drawing. There were more than 14.2 MILLION entries in the second-chance lottery drawing.

It was the fourth and final second-chance drawing for the Multiply The Cash promotion. Cummings picked up her prize Thursday at lottery headquarters, and will take home $71,010 after state and federal taxes.

“Ticket sales from scratch-offs make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million a year for education. For details on how $8.1 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Harnett County in 2020, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.”

Locals have had a lot of good luck with the lottery recently, with two Cumberland County winners hitting on the same Cash 5 ticket in late January also. Lola Allen from Fayetteville, and an unnamed person in Spring Lake, each won $264,419 – one third of a nearly $800,000 jackpot – before taxes.
