“I was just so surprised,” said Jeje when he got the notification of his win. “I said, ‘Oh my God, this is good.’”
Jeje said he likes second-chance drawings because he gets another shot at winning with the same scratch-off. All Multiply the Cash tickets currently on sale are eligible for the next second-chance drawing.
His entry was chosen from 22,219,972 entries in the Oct. 6 drawing. Winners of second-chance drawings receive a phone call or email notifying them that they won.
Jeje claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and, after federal and state tax withholdings, took home $70,750. He said he planned to invest his winnings.
The last of four 2021 Multiply the Cash second-chance drawing is scheduled for Feb. 9. The drawing offers one $100,000 grand prize, eight $5,000 prizes, and 25 $500 prizes.
