West End man wins first $100,000 prize in new scratch-off game

Gerald Lee of West End took a chance on a $20 scratch-off and won the first $100,000 prize in a new scratch-off game.

Lee bought his lucky $2,000,000 Diamond Deluxe ticket from the Circle K on U.S. 15-501 in Carthage.

He arrived at lottery headquarters Friday to claim his prize and, after required tax withholdings, took home $71,506.

The $2,000,000 Diamond Deluxe game debuted in December with four $2 million top prizes and eight $100,000 prizes. Four $2 million prizes and seven $100,000 prizes remain to be claimed.

This is the second Moore County resident to win the lottery within a month.

Toy McLeod, of Aberdeen, took a chance on a $20 scratch-off and won a $2 million prize in January.
