RALEIGH, N.C. -- A Gibsonville man won $100,000 playing the lottery a few days before Christmas.
Joseph Rickman bought a winning Jingle Big Ol' Bucks ticket from a Sheetz in Archdale. His earnings total $68,001 after taxes.
"It's remarkable to win this money," Rickman said in a statement. "It's just amazing to have a blessing like this come at this time of year."
According to a news release from the North Carolina Education Lottery, Rickman plans to donate a portion of the money to his church and his family.
NCEL says two more $100,000 prizes have not yet been claimed.
