Crisp bought his lucky ticket from the Stop & Go on Sweeten Creek Road in Asheville. His ticket matched all five numbers in Tuesday’s Cash 5 drawing.
Crisp became one of three players to match all five numbers in the drawing so the $793,257 jackpot was split three ways. The other two winning tickets came from Cumberland County. One ticket was purchased at the Food Lion on Rosehill Road in Fayetteville and the other came from the Shop N Save on Lillington Highway in Spring Lake.
Crisp claimed his prize Monday and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $187,764.
