An Indian Trail man has won $100,000 playing the North Carolina lottery.
Im feeling very happy, Abdelrahman Kirdasi told lottery officials as he collected his winnings on Friday. This helps me work out a lot of things. I cant wait to get to the bank.
Kirdasi won playing the $4 million Gold Bullion game, the lottery reported Friday.
According to the lottery, the odds of winning $100,000 in that game are roughly one in 1 million.
Kirdasi bought his ticket at the Kangaroo Express on U.S. 74 West in Indian Trail.
By law, the North Carolina lottery revenue pays for teachers salaries in grades K-3, school construction, prekindergarten programs for at-risk 4-year-olds, college scholarships and financial aid, and digital learning initiatives.
The N.C. Education Lottery reported that it has raised more than $2.9 billion for these initiatives statewide.
