Talk about luck.
Herbert Marsh of High Point, North Carolina, won $200,000 the first time he played the lottery.
Going on a feeling something good would happen, Marsh bought a Powerball ticket for the Wednesday drawing that matched all five numbers.
Marsh told the North Carolina Education Lottery he plans to buy a new car with some of the money and put the rest in savings.
He purchased his ticket at the Kangaroo Express on National Highway in Thomasville.
Another Triad resident also recently won money.
Katherine Lolling of Graham won $175,000 playing the "Big Ol' Bucks" instant scratch-off game Sunday at the Kangaroo Express #3172 on South Main Street in Graham.
Lolling scratched the ticket while still in the store, with the cashier watching and crossing her fingers for luck.
She said she will use some of the money to pay off bills.
On Saturday in the "Carolina Cash 5" drawing, one ticket matched all five numbers and is worth $178,165. That ticket was sold at the Quick Mart on West Main Street in Jamestown.
The prize has yet to be claimed.
