Charles Trottier of Clemmons found himself the lucky winner of a $1 million Platinum 7s top prize.
Trottier purchased his winning $10 ticket from Carlton’s Tanglewood on Clemmons Road in Clemmons.
He claimed his prize Wednesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh.
Trottier had the choice of taking the $1 million prize as an annuity of $50,000 a year for 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump sum of $600,000 and took home $424,503 after required federal and state tax withholdings.
Platinum 7s launched in May with five top prizes of $1 million. Two top prizes remain to be won.
