KING, N.C. — A Stokes County man who won the lottery said his horoscope encouraged him to buy the winning ticket.
North Carolina lottery officials said King resident Ken Johnson recently won a $100,000 prize after buying a scratch-off ticket.
Johnson said he bought the ticket after reading his horoscope in the newspaper. He said he starts each day with his horoscope.
“An upturn in your financial affairs could suddenly and unexpectedly occur,” Johnson read in his newspaper, the Winston-Salem Journal. “This shift is likely to prove helpful in more ways than one.”
Johnson said he then went to Pete’s Grocery on Doral Drive in Tobaccoville on Friday morning and bought a $4,000,000 Gold Bullion ticket.
He said his first ticket didn’t win, so he bought another. He said he won $25 with the second ticket and decided to buy a third.
