$1 Gamble Turns into $100K Payday for Arden Local

In a stroke of sheer luck, an Arden, North Carolina resident transformed a mere $1 into a whopping $100,000. The fortunate winner, Eddie Sasser, snagged the large sum in the Cash 5 lottery.

Sasser’s winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased online for the May 29 drawing. The lottery officials confirmed that the numbers drawn were 9-13-15-23-32. With odds of hitting all five white balls standing at 1 in 962,598, Sasser’s win is nothing short of miraculous.

On June 20, Sasser made his way to the lottery headquarters in Raleigh to claim his prize, walking away with $71,500 after taxes.

In a related note, the June 20 Cash 5 drawing saw winning numbers of 3, 19, 29, 32, and 33, with one lucky ticket holder bagging a $130,000 jackpot. Tonight’s jackpot resets to $100,000 as anticipation builds anew.
