The NC Educational Lottery announced today that a $100,000 lottery ticket was purchased in Mint Hill by Erika Aguayo:

For Aguayo, “Mega Bucks” was her lucky game. The Charlotte woman bought one instant ticket and scratched it off at home. When it revealed the top prize of $100,000, she says she thought, “Am I reading this right?” Indeed she was!

Aguayo bought her winning ticket at Pit Stop #102 on Lawyers Road in Mint Hill. She plans to use the money to help purchase a house, as well as spend some of it on a planned trip to Walt Disney World next summer.
