“We’re still in disbelief mode,” Short said in a statement to the North Carolina Education Lottery. A long time player of the All or Nothing lottery, Short recently took a break from playing the game. A few weeks ago she asked her husband to buy a $2 ticket from Publix super market after “a feeling the game was going to be lucky.” “We kind of didn’t believe it,” Short shared. “We checked the same ticket six or seven times because we thought we misread it.” After taking out federal and state taxes, Short received $173,125 from the drawing. However, this isn’t the first time Short has won the lottery. This past February, Short won $1 million in the Ultimate Millions second-chance drawing. Her ticket was picked from more than 1.2 million entries. Short was shocked when she found out she won the grand prize, dropping to the floor in excitement. She chose the lump sum payment walking away with $415,500.
