Jalen McLean, an 18-year-old resident of Raleigh, turned $10 into a $1 million fortune with a scratch-off ticket.

McLean’s sister, Dasha Silas, assisted in his victory by purchasing a $10 Jumbo Bucks ticket from the Valero on South McPherson Church Road in Fayetteville.

“I feel like the luckiest guy in the universe,” Jalen McLean said. “How many 18-year-olds win something like this?”

McLean chose to receive his winnings as an annuity, entailing $50,000 annual payments for the next two decades, rather than a lump sum of $600,000.

He received his first check Wednesday. He took home $35,753 after taxes.
