SPRING LAKE, N.C. (WTVD) -- A Spring Lake man won a $100,000 lottery jackpot just weeks after hauling in $5,000 in another lottery game.

Henry Harvey has now made some serious cash off $10 and $25 scratch off tickets.

"Two weeks ago, I won $5,000 there on a $10 scratch off," he said. "So, this time, when I scratched off and saw I won, I was extremely happy and surprised."
