RALEIGH – Danny Crump of Indian Trail took a chance on a $5 scratch-off ticket and won a $150,000 prize.

Crump bought his lucky Mystery Prize Cashword ticket from the Quik Trip on U.S. 74 West in Indian Trail. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $106,516.

The Mystery Prize Cashword game debuted in September with six top prizes of $150,000. One $150,000 prize remains to be claimed.

Ticket sales from scratch-off games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million per year for education. For details on how $16.4 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Union County in 2021, visit and click on the “Impact” section.
