CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A Charlotte woman won a $258,000 lottery jackpot with only a 1 in 240,000 chance of winning after buying a ticket on Providence Road.

Kimberly Smith of Charlotte tried her luck on a Fast Play ticket and won herself a $258,376 jackpot.

She purchased her winning $5 Blizzard Bingo ticket from the Circle K on Providence Road in Charlotte.

The odds of winning a Fast Play jackpot are 1 in 240,000. A $5 ticket receives 50 percent of the jackpot amount.

Smith claimed her prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh and took home $182,802 after required federal and state tax withholdings.

Fast Play’s rolling, progressive jackpot increases with every ticket sold until it is won.

Printed on each Fast Play ticket is the amount of the jackpot when the ticket is sold and how much of that jackpot the ticket could win. Players can also win instant cash prizes on their Fast Play tickets.
