Berra Sen had finished up her shift as a nurse.
The Holly Springs woman stopped at Walmart to do some Christmas shopping, and tried her luck on a scratch-off, winning $100,000.
“It will be a nice Christmas for sure with my children and grandchildren,” Sen said. “They are my world.”
Sen, a 60-year-old pediatric nurse, bought her lucky $20 Mega 7’s ticke ont Friday morning from the Walmart Supercenter on GB Alford Highway in Holly Springs.
“When I scratched it, I couldn’t believe it because my birthday is on the 19th and it matched 19 on the ticket,” Sen said. “I’m still in shock.”
Sen arrived at lottery headquarters on Friday to collect her prize. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $71,016.
On Friday, Sen said she would use her winnings to pay some bills, put some in savings and have a nice Christmas with her family.
Mega 7’s debuted in October with four $2 million prizes and eight $100,000 prizes.
