The Premier Cash game debuted in August 2021

Winning the lottery is one of our dreams, especially during the holidays. Ricardo Sandoval Magdaleno of Gold Hill got extremely lucky with his $20 scratch-off ticket. Magdaleno won a $100,000 lottery prize when buying a Premier Cash scratch-off ticket. Magdaleno bought his lucky Premier Cash ticket from Circle K on South Salisbury Avenue in Granite Quarry. He claimed his prize Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and, after required federal and state withholdings, took home $71,016. The Premier Cash game debuted in August 2021 with four top prizes of $2 million and eight $100,000 prizes. Magdaleno won the last $100,000 prize. One $2 million prize remains to be claimed. If you win a lottery over $600 will not remain anonymous. That is according to the North Carolina lottery statute. However, the statute also states that if you win over $50 million, you have 90 days after claiming the prize to reveal your identity.

Ticket sales from lottery games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $2.5 million a day on average for education. For details on how $7.4 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Rowan County in 2021, visit and click on the “Impact” section.
