A retired teacher won a $110,000 lottery jackpot after using a combination of his children’s birthdays as his winning numbers.

Louis Paine Jr, 77, said he was “flabbergasted” to take home the prize after buying a Cash 5 drawing in North Carolina on February 1.

“Of course, I didn’t believe it,” he told the North Carolina Education Lottery.

Louis spent 40 years as an educator and said that he enjoyed playing the lottery as it raises money for local schools.

“Giving back to education is very important,” he said.

“It’s the greatest thing we have in our country.”

Sharing winnings

Louis said that he wanted to invest some of his winnings, which came to $78,122 after required state and federal tax withholdings.

He added that he would share the rest of the cash out with his family.

It’s unclear if he always played using his kids’ birthdays or if he always used a different combination.

Louis’ success comes after another North Carolina lottery winner took home $264,419 after using the same numbers for 16 years.

Lola Allen also won with a $1 Cash 5 ticket.

She told lotto officials there that she was “numb” with shock when she discovered her numbers had been drawn.

Favorite Numbers

Lola, also a retired teacher, said: “From the very beginning, I’ve been using the same numbers.

“They are my favorite numbers, so I stuck with them.

“When they all fell into place, I was in shock. I was numb.”

The Sun reported last month on the army vet who won $4 million on the lottery after he used the numbers from a fortune cookie.

Gabriel Fierro, 60, bought the sweet treat while he was dining with his wife at the Red Bowl Asian Bistro in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Fierro received an email that he had won which left him “dumbfounded” and his wife thought it was a scam or April Fools Joke.

And one scratchcard player in Maryland scooped the jackpot prize for the third time in three years and bought all the winning tickets from the same shop.
