The North Carolina Education Lottery has reported that a Halifax County man scored $1 million on a scratch-off ticket.
Richard Todd, of Roanoke Rapids, took a chance on a $30 scratch-off and won a $1 million prize. He purchased his lucky Millionaire Maker ticket from the Speed Mart on East 10th Street in Roanoke Rapids.
When Todd arrived at lottery headquarters Friday, January 13, he had a decision to make: He could choose to receive his prize as an annuity of $50,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump-sum amount of $600,000 and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $427,509.
