RALEIGH – Patrick Stanley of Randleman plans to use the $100,000 he won playing Black Onyx 7’s to buy a new truck and replace the roof of his home.
“We’ve been talking about doing that for a while,” Stanley said. “This will make it really easy. We may end up replacing the windows, too. I’m happy.”
After state and federal taxes were withheld, Stanley received a check for $68,001. As of Wednesday afternoon, one top prizes remain to be claimed in the Black Onyx 7’s game. Stanley purchased the lucky $5 ticket at the Level Cross BP on U.S. 220 Business North in Randleman.
