They say that moving is one of the most stressful things you can do in life, but I imagine it was one of the best things that ever happened to Jeremy Hartzell.
Jeremy just moved to North Carolina and one of the first things he did was buy a scratch off ticket at a local gas station near where he lived in Asheville. Jeremy says there really was no real motive for buying the 10$ Big Cash Payout. He was just there at that quick mart in Marshall and bought it “just because”.
That was a good decision. Jeremy won a cool 1 million dollars with that ticket and Monday he claimed his prize from the NC Education Lottery office. He chose the lump payout of $424,063 after all the fees and taxes were taken out. Get this, Jeremy is only 25! He says he doesn’t have any firm plans for the money yet but he does plan to use it to make life better for his two kids. And he says he might buy instead of rent:) Enjoy!
