Duane Zastrow of Clayton took a chance on a Millionaire Maker ticket and found himself a $1 million top prize winner.
Zastrow purchased his winning $30 ticket from the Sandhu’s on Amelia Church Road in Clayton.
He claimed his prize Monday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.
Zastrow had the option of taking the $1 million as an annuity of $50,000 a year over 20 years, or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump sum of $600,000 and took home $424,509 after required federal and state tax withholdings.
Millionaire Maker is the first scratch-off to offer 30 $1 million prizes. Zastrow became the 11th person to win one of those $1 million prizes.

So that's 19, million dollar tickets left. I'm rooting for Eastern Carolina. Thank you all for leaving a count each time someone wins.
