SWANSBORO, N.C. -

An Onslow County man won nearly $115,000 in the Carolina Cash 5 lottery game.

Dexter Barlow, a retiree from Swansboro, matched all five numbers in Friday's drawing.

Barlow says he was sitting at home Saturday morning when he realized he found out he won.

"I sat down with my laptop to check my numbers and saw I had won a few dollars on my other tickets," Barlow said. "Then I got down to the last ticket I had purchased. I looked at the screen, then back at my ticket. I did that about four times. That's when I started shaking."

After taxes his prize comes out to more than $78,000.

He plans to make repairs to his home, are some of the money with his children and save for the future.
