Georgianna Whyte of Knightdale took a chance on the JAMES BOND 007™ scratch-off game and won a $200,000 top prize.
Whyte bought the lucky $5 ticket at the EP MART on Knightdale Boulevard in Knightdale. She claimed her prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $141,501.
JAMES BOND 007™ launched in April with four top prizes of $200,000. One top prize remains to be won.
Ticket sales from scratch-off games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $700 million per year for education. For details on how $62.7 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Wake County last year, visit www.nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.

700 million? But numbers get blocked/not dropped so the state won't have to pay?? what's the point of Lucky rewards when no one from Rocky Mount gets a call.
