Pitt County man wins $100,000 lottery, said he would someday

RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) – An Ayden man always believed he would win the lottery someday and his dream came true on Friday.

The North Carolina Education Lottery says William Shivers bought a lucky 200X The Cash ticket from a Circle K in Winterville. He won the first $100,000 prize of the new game.

“I was in disbelief,” Shivers recalled. “I think that game is my new favorite now.”

Shivers collected his $71,509 winnings Monday. He said he will use the winnings to pay some bills and build a metal shop in his backyard.

According to the lottery, the 200X The Cash game debuted last week with five $5 million top prizes and nine more $100,000 prizes.
