Levonne McQueen wins $100,000 playing Cash 5

NC (STL.News) Levonne McQueen of Laurinburg had been playing Cash 5 all week, and on Thursday, her persistence paid off with a $100,000 jackpot prize.

McQueen purchased her lucky $1 ticket from Nic’s Pic Kwik on Main Street in Wagram.

The couple woke up on Friday morning, and decided to check the Quick Pick ticket.  “My husband was looking at the phone and he was calling out the numbers,” said McQueen. One by one, he called out the first four numbers as McQueen replied, “I got all four of them!”

When he called out the fifth number, McQueen couldn’t believe it.  “I got that, too!” she said.  “I couldn’t even say a word because I didn’t believe it myself.”

McQueen claimed her prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $70,750.

With her winnings, McQueen said she plans to pay off some bills.
