Pikeville man’s lucky streak ends with $200,000 lottery win

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - A Pikeville man is celebrating after his lucky lottery win culminated with a $200,000 prize.

“I did something nice for someone last week and ever since I’ve been winning on lottery tickets,” Baldwin said. “I won $100 on Thursday, $50 on Friday, $125 on Sunday and then $200,000 on Monday night.”

Baldwin found out about the big win while he was sitting in the parking lot of the Kangaroo Express on South Church Street in Kenly. That's where he purchased the lucky $5 ticket.
“I must have looked at the ticket ten times,” Baldwin said. “I started screaming and hollering when I realized how much I had won.”

Baldwin will receive $138,401 after taxes. He's going to buy a new 2014 Chevy Silverado and pay bills with his winnings.

“This is just good karma,” Baldwin added. “You never believe it will happen to you, but it feels great when it does.”
