A Southport woman scored big this week with a $5 scratch-off ticket, walking away with a $200,000 prize.
Julia O’Neal purchased the lucky $200,000 Triple Play ticket from Murphy Express on North Howe Street in Southport and claimed her prize Friday.
“It was unreal,” O’Neal said. “I just couldn’t believe it.”
After federal and state taxes, she took home $141,501, according to a news release.
“It comes in handy for me because I can fix the house up and pay bills,” she said.
The game launched in May with four top prizes of $200,000. One prize remains to be won.
