It feels like the Carolinas are pretty lucky when it comes to the lottery! Timiaya Ellison, a Charlotte woman, recently won $1 million after scoring one of the two biggest Cash 5 lottery jackpots in NC history. Ellison bought the $1.05 million winning ticket at the Circle K on University City Boulevard in northeast Charlotte.
Charlotte also had a second winner who got their ticket from a Circle K on John J Delaney Drive in Ballantyne. The two tickets matched all five numbers and they split the record-breaking $2 million jackpot. She took home more than $740,000 after taxes! You can read more on her big win here!
