Barry Bruce says he just had a hunch to buy a scratch off ticket. That hunch paid off. Barry, who is from Virginia, was reportedly at Jones Exxon on NC 16 near Stanley when he purchased that fateful scratch off ticket.
The Gaston Gazette says Barry won $100,000 dollars! He almost walked out of the store without that purchase but something told him to plunk down that 25 dollars and try his hand at his luck. After taxes the Virginia man walks away with $71,017!
He says he may do a little home remodeling and of course help out his family. Good to see a sweet guy win.
