“I had $6 dollars left and thought, ‘Well go ahead and give me two Powerball Power Plays,” he said, according to the release.
The next week, he went back to the convenience store and discovered one of the tickets had won him a $200,000 prize.
“I had the girl check them for me,” Parrish told lottery officials. “She said, ‘You’ve got to go to Raleigh!’”
His ticket matched four of the white balls and the Powerball in the drawing on March 18, winning him $50,000. The prize was then quadrupled by the drawing of the 4X Power Play multiplier, the release says.
He told lottery officials he always uses Quick Pick when playing.When he found out how much he won, he called his wife to tell her.
“She couldn’t believe it, she kept telling me quit messing with her,” he told lottery officials. “By the time she got home, my son and I had realized how much we’d won and I told her over the phone before she got home and she just bawled. She cried all the way home.”
Parrish claimed his prize on Monday and took home $141,501 after taxes.He told lottery officials he plans to use the money to pay off his daughter’s car, maybe buy a new truck and “stick the rest in the bank.”
