Jun. 10—A North Carolina woman is "still in shock" after winning a jackpot lottery prize.

Jennifer Raynor bought a $5 Double Cash Doubler scratch-off ticket from a Speedway gas station on N.C. 41 in Wallace and played the ticket while in her car, according to a news release from the North Carolina Education Lottery.

She told lottery officials she "just stopped and sat there" when she saw she won a $200,000 top prize.

"I re-read the instructions to make sure I was seeing it correctly, because I didn't believe it," she told officials.

Raynor claimed her prize Wednesday in Raleigh and took home $141,501 after taxes.

She told lottery officials she plans to use the money to take a vacation and pay off her house.

The Double Cash Doubler game launched in April with six top prizes of $200,000, the lottery says. After Raynor's win, one remains.
