After playing the same set of numbers for 26 years, one North Carolina couple finally hit the jackpot.

Terry Coggeshall of Durham and his wife took home over $366,000 last week after winning the Cash 5 jackpot.

The couple came close to winning a few times in the past but never hit it big.

This time, Coggeshall purchased his lucky ticket from a grocery store in Chapel Hill.

When he arrived home, he and his wife watched together as the winning numbers were called.

“I was in the La-Z-Boy as she was standing there watching and she started screaming. She goes, ‘I won, I won!’ And I go, ‘What?!'”

The pair took home $259,425 after taxes.

Coggeshall, a delivery coordinator, plans to use the money toward retirement.

The odds of winning the cash 5 drawing are 1 in 962,598.
