Dad Wins $10 Million Lottery Prize on Lunch Break
James Belich said that he and his wife will use part of the money to pay off their bills and then invest the rest.
A North Carolina father stepped out for lunch and returned a multimillionaire.
James Belich picked up a lottery ticket while on his midday break, scratched it in the store and discovered he'd won $10 million, according to North Carolina Education Lottery.
“You never expect it,” Belich told lottery officials. “You think maybe you’ll win something, but not $10 million. It’s unbelievable.”
After taxes and fees, he's bringing home about $4.2 million. Belich said that he and his wife will use part of the money to pay off their bills and then invest the rest.
Mostly, he's happy that his two young sons are set for life.
“We may buy a few extra rounds for folks when we go out, but this prize will create a brighter future for our kids," Belich said. "That’s what’s important.
"It’s awesome, just a blessing.”
