Nathan Shuping of North Wilkesboro tried his luck on a $20 scratch-off ticket and won a $100,000 prize.
Shuping bought his lucky $2,000,000 Diamond Dazzler ticket from Run-In 102 on Winkler Street in Wilkesboro.
He arrived at lottery headquarters Tuesday to collect his prize and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $71,256.
