(CNN)After around 40 stores and four hours of searching, one North Carolina man finally struck gold.

Kevin Clark, of Candler, North Carolina, played a hunch and went on a journey to find the last top prize of the $5,000,000 Mega Cash scratch-off game.

"I had a real good feeling it was going to be in the western part of the state," Clark said, according to the NC Education Lottery.

Clark spent four hours going store to store, buying every single $20 Mega Cash ticket, until he finally found the winner at a Stop N Go on U. S. 70 in Swannanoa, North Carolina.

After taxes, Clark went home with about $2. 1 million -- not bad for four hours of work.

"I'm a simple man and I mow grass," Clark said.

In North Carolina, the money from selling scratch-off tickets goes to fund education in the state.

Over the last year, the NC Education Lottery reported the most money ever raised, $729. 8 million -- which funds things like repairs on schools, college scholarships and support for the free NC Pre-K.
