An Inman woman is $1 million richer thanks to a Powerball ticket she bought in North Carolina.
Layheang Loch, a warehouse supervisor, bought the ticket for the June 13 drawing at the Roadrunner Market on Dellwood Road in Waynesville, NC, during a visit to the mountains. The ticket matched all five white balls.
"I remember telling the clerk that I was buying tickets for the big jackpot because I didn't want to go to work the next day," Loch said. "When I saw the numbers, I couldn't believe it. I was so excited. I started jumping up and down."
Loch's advice to other Powerball players? Keep the faith.
"A lot of people say you can't win," Loch said. "Don't give up hope. I almost did, but here I am."
After taxes, Loch took home a check for $680,004.
