MONROE, N.C. -- A retired firefighter in Union County has a reason to celebrate.
Richard Mason, from Monroe, took home more than $93,000 after playing the Carolina Cash 5.
The numbers from his Quick Pick ticket matched all five numbers.
Mason says, "I'm going to live a little more worry-free."
He split the $268,850 jackpot with one other person. His share was $134,425 before taxes.
