RALEIGH, N.C. — A Forsyth County man has won $1 million in a second-chance lottery drawing.
On Thursday, N.C. Education Lottery officials announced that a man from Forsyth County had won the prize through the Carolina Gold game. The winner’s name has not been released.
The prize is the largest that’s ever been given in a second-chance drawing in the state, officials said. Second-chance drawings are a component of some instant lottery games in which non-winning tickets can be entered into a drawing for another chance at winning.
The winner, who is set to claim his prize Friday morning, will choose to receive the prize as an annuity that pays $50,000 each year for 20 years or can accept it as lump sum of $680,000.
