Already the winner of a Cash 5 jackpot, Judy Marshburn of Spring Hope found herself back in the winner’s circle Wednesday, this time collecting the first $700,000 top prize in a new scratch-off game.
According to the North Carolina Lottery website, Marshburn didn’t just win this one day. She had previously won a Cash 5 jackpot of $307,726 in June of 2008. “I doubled my win this time,” Marshburn said. “Next time I’m coming for the million.” This woman is insanely lucky.
Marshburn purchased her lucky $10 Scorching Hot 7s ticket from the Stop N Shop on East Nash Street in Spring Hope. “I looked at it and I just couldn’t believe it,” Marshburn said. “I’m just very blessed!” Marshburn claimed her prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina. She took home $497,073 after taxes.
