Edward Pope of Winston-Salem won the last $4 million top prize in the Education Lottery’s Millionaire Bucks game.

Pope bought the lucky $20 ticket at the Brewer Family Fare on Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem and claimed his prize on Monday.

He had the option of taking his prize as an annuity of $200,000 a year for 20 years or as a lump sum of $2.4 million. He chose the lump sum and after state and federal tax withholdings took home $1,698,006.

Since Pope won the last of four $4 million prizes in the game, the lottery will start the process of ending the game.
