Kenneth Moore of Southern Pines took a second-chance for luck on a lottery ticket and ending up winning $1 million.
Moore’s win came Wednesday as he won the grand prize in the Colossal Cash Second Chance Drawing. The drawing had 834,929 entries.
Moore claimed his prize Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. He had the choice of taking an annuity that has 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump sum. After required state and federal tax withholdings, he took home $424,500.
Two Colossal Cash second-chance drawings remain. Each drawing offers 29 prizes including the grand prize of $1 million, three $10,000 prizes, and 25 prizes of $500. To enter those drawings, players enter their $10,000,000 Colossal Cash tickets via the lottery’s website, nclottery.com, or scan the ticket’s bar code using the NC Lottery Official Mobile App.
