March 23, 2020 Posted by NC Lottery at 12:30 PM

Robee Bailey Jr. of Concord beat odds of one in 1.8 million in the Jan. 27 Lucky for Life drawing and won the $25,000 A Year for Life prize.

He bought his lucky $2 ticket at the Circle K on East Arbors Drive in Charlotte.

Bailey claimed his prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. Winners are guaranteed $25,000 a year for life and have the option of taking a lump sum. Bailey chose the lump sum. After federal and state tax withholdings, he took home $275,930.

Lucky for Life has 10 ways to win a prize. Bailey won the second-place prize. The top prize is $1,000 A Day For Life.

More than $14 million in money raised by the lottery supported education programs in Cabarrus County last year, including $2.6 million in school construction funds.

If you take the annuity payment,can you leave the balance of the annuity payment to your family?NC Lottery
That's a great question, Wilhelmina. If someone were to win a "For Life" prize in Lucky For Life and they chose the annuity option, they would receive the annuity payment for the rest of their life. If they were to pass away before 20 years have elapsed, the remaining annuity payments would be paid to the winner's designated estate until 20 payments have been made.
