Knightdale man sees dream home after winning $1 million lottery


RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – A 31-year-old Knightdale man says he plans to buy his dream home after winning $1 million in a scratch card.

Tayron Sparks is a husband and father of three. He bought a $10 Lucky Platinum 7s ticket from A&C Exxon on Knightdale Boulevard in Knightdale after working a night shift. When he scratched it off, it was said he had won a $1 million prize.

He was tired from work and thought he was going crazy, but soon realized he really was a winner. He immediately called his wife.

“I told my wife, ‘Now we can have the house we always wanted,'” Sparks said. “I told her, ‘We got it. We have a million dollars.”

He says he still couldn’t sleep after receiving the news. “But it’s okay because I just won a million dollars.” Sparks’ wife is just as happy about the win.

When collecting his prize, Sparks had two choices: $50,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. He opted for the lump sum and took home $426,063 after deducting state and federal taxes.

The NC Education Lottery says ticket sales from scratch games allow them to raise more than $900 million a year for education. In 2021, $65.1 million was raised for Wake County.
