North Carolina Man Wins $2 Million Lottery PrizeJames Goodwin is the latest lucky lottery winner. Goodwin purchased a Powerball ticket and it was worth $2 million dollars. Goodwin is a retired mechanic from Kannapolis and he did not even realize the ticket he had purchased was a winner.
The ticket had remained unclaimed for some time and thankfully a friend of Goodwin had seen a post on Facebook and told Goodwin about the unclaimed lottery ticket. Goodwin then had his friend check the numbers and they found he was the winner.
Goodwin was shocked. He claimed $1.36 million after taxes and he plans on using the winnings to pay off his daughters mortgages as well as help renovate his church and help his grandchildren. Goodwin has asked to remain out of the spotlight despite his win.
Lottery officials stated that Goodwin had asked not to do any interviews and he did not want a formal presentation either. Goodwin turned down all media coverage on the win. Goodwin purchased the winning ticket at the Lane Express Food Mart and he has been a regular at the store for ten years.
