Yadkin County man Hermelindo Rebollar-Nunez Wins $200,000

Raleigh, NC (STL.News) A $200,000 top prize for Hermelindo Rebollar-Nunez of Yadkinville means a potential new home for him and his family.

Rebollar-Nunez, who works as a machine operator, often stops at the Perth Mini Mart on Perth Road in Troutman on his way to or from work.

On Thursday, he purchased a $5 Lucky 7 Bonus ticket and scratched it while he was sitting in the cafeteria at his work.

Once he realized he was a big winner, he “let out a big yell and said, ‘I hit it!’”

Rebollar-Nunez claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.  After required federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $141,501.

With his prize money, he said he plans to “potentially buy a new house” and save the rest.
