MAGGIE VALLEY, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Do you believe in karma? A western North Carolina man does after winning a lottery jackpot on Wednesday.

The NC Education Lottery said the Maggie Valley man plays several lotto games but he only adds Carolina Cash 5 when the jackpot crosses $200,000.

On Wednesday, when the jackpot was at $237,710, he bought 10 Quick Pick tickets from the Smokey Express on Soco Road.

When he realized he had all five winning numbers, he almost didn't believe it. It set in while he paced around his living room: this retired businessman won the lottery.

“I wasn’t expecting it,” he said. “If anything, it was maybe my karma.”

The winner said he plans to pay off his mortgage, take a trip to Vegas and save the rest.
