BISCOE, N.C. — A North Carolina Veteran has a lot to celebrate after winning the Cash 5 jackpot on his birthday!

Walker Quick of Biscoe just celebrated his 57th birthday with more than just a slice of cake.

“It feels great!” Quick said. “I found out I won on my birthday. I couldn’t ask for a better gift.”

Quick’s luck turned into good fortune when he stopped at the Ready Mart on South Main Street in Biscoe to buy the Cash 5 ticket. Quick found out the next morning and just couldn’t believe his luck.

“I started shaking,” Quick said. “I couldn’t believe it. I had to check the numbers over and over again to make sure I wasn’t seeing things. I even checked them again this morning before I came here, just to make sure it really happened.”

Quick took home $191,750 after state and federal taxes.
