A well deserved win!
A nurse from North Carolina, USA, has won $1 million in the Super Riches lottery.
The nurse works in the COVID-19 unit at a long-term care facility.
Terri Watkins, the winner, reportedly entered the $300,000,000 Supreme Riches second-chance drawing.
When the state Education Lottery called to congratulate her, Watkins said she was extremely shocked.
During a press, release, she said:
I thought that it was a scam. I was a little upset actually! I thought that it was not real, couldn’t be real. It’s still something that I really don’t believe, I’m still in some shock here.
Her name was chosen from over 513,000 entries.
She had the option to take $424,500 cash or get $50,000 annually for 20 years.
The woman decided to take home cash and collected her prize on Thursday.
Talking about her win, she said:
I’m a nurse and I work in the COVID unit at a long-term care facility. Just seeing some of the things that I’ve had to see, I am very thankful. I had been praying for something to help me with this situation. It really is a great thing. I’m very blessed.
The nurse said she is going to take it slow and figure out what she would do with the money that she won.
The woman also said that buying a new house will be nice.
