North Carolina man wins scratch card jackpot
RALEIGH, NC – A man from Morrisville is the first jackpot winner from the North Carolina Education Lottery scratch card, $200,000 a year for life. He is guaranteed to receive $4 million in annuity payments over the next 20 years and will get more the longer he lives.
Michael Stutts, 53, purchased his ticket at a gas station on Thursday on his drive back home from a business meeting. He is the first winner of this incredible jackpot prize, meaning there are two equivalent prizes left.
The winner did not indicate any plans he had for the money, but it will surely come in useful for him and his family.
The scratch-off ticket he won the prize from costs $20 to play and still has seven second prizes of $50,000 a year for life with a guaranteed payout of $1 million remaining as well.
