      NC resident wins $4 million in the lottery

      PFAFFTOWN, N.C.- A Pfafftown resident is about to cash in a $4 million lottery winning.

      Officials with the North Carolina Education Lottery say they'll present a celebratory check to the winner Friday afternoon at Three Brothers By-Lo in Winston-Salem.

      The winner is the first to win the top prize in the $4 million Gold Bullion scratch-off game.

      The game started Feb. 12 with three top prizes of $4 million and seven prizes of $1 million.

      Winners of the top prize can claim it as a 20-year annuity or a lump sum option that can be claimed in either cash or gold bullion.
