North Carolina man wins big lottery prize for a second time

MORGANTON, N.C. (AP) — Lottery luck has smiled on a North Carolina man for the second time in seven years.

Jesse Hildebran won $250,000 after buying four 20X The Cash scratch-off tickets in a convenience store in Morganton on Tuesday, the North Carolina Education Lottery stated inside a news release.

Amazingly, this isn’t the first time Hildebran has hit it big time with the lottery. In 2013, he won $200,000 within the Extreme Cash game.

Hildebran, a retiree from Connelly Springs, told lottery officials he spent his first prize on a beach trip and intends to do the same with his new prize.
