GREENSBORO, N.C. (WGHP) — Danny Lackey, of Greensboro, said he plans to give back to those in need with his $100,000 Powerball win, according to an NC Education Lottery news release.
“We’ve got a number of people we have identified that we want to help out,” Lackey said.
Lackey bought his winning $3 Quick Pick ticket on the NC Lottery app.
Lackey matched the numbers on four white balls and the red Powerball to win $50,000 in the Feb. 4 drawing. The prize doubled to $100,000 when the 2X Power Play multiplier hit.
“I said to my wife, ‘I might not have mentioned to you that I’ve been buying some tickets online, but we won $100,000,’” Lackey said.
He claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters.
After required federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $71,251.
