Travis Archible of Smithfield tells North Carolina Education Lottery officials he had a feeling that he was supposed to buy a $30 Millionaire Maker scratch ticket during his lunch break, but the first place he went didn’t have the ticket. "I was on my lunch break and I was pressed for time like always, but I knew I needed to get that ticket". He went to another store which was out as well, but found one for sale at the third store, the Variety Pic-Up store in Wendell NC
After racing back to work, Travis scratched off his ticket and he could hardly believe his luck. The ticket he chased down won him a $1-million jackpot! “I was so excited,” he says.
He plans to use his winnings to start his own business because he says he wants to “stop working for somebody else where I have to rush my lunch break and work for myself.”
