RALEIGH — For Robert Hinnant of Rocky Mount, a $200,000 “mega” win means no more mortgage payments.

“It’s exciting,” said Hinnant. “It’s unbelievable.”

Hinnant, a retiree, said his good luck means he can pay off his mortgage and take a vacation.

The big win came with a $5 Mega Bucks ticket Hinnant purchased at the 301 Convenient Mart on North Wesleyan Boulevard in Rocky Mount.

Hinnant claimed his prize Friday at North Carolina Education Lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $141,501.
