MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) – A man in North Carolina has claimed a $1 million lottery ticket that he bought while shopping for ingredients to make goulash.
North Carolina’s lottery said in a statement Tuesday that Edward Snyder bought the Cash 5 ticket at a Food Lion grocery store in Mooresville, which is north of Charlotte.
Snyder told lottery officials that the winnings will bring him closer to retirement.
He said ticket was a “great Christmas gift and an incredible way to start the New Year.”
