The lucky player, who chose to remain anonymous, matched the numbers drawn on Sunday – 07-09-13-20-23 – to win the big prize. He bought his winning ticket at the Shell gas station, located at 302 South Cochran Avenue in Charlotte.
“I was taken aback when I checked my ticket and saw I matched all five numbers,” said the player. “I asked my mother to pinch me to make sure I wasn’t just dreaming.”
The lucky player visited Lottery headquarters Monday to claim his prize. With his winnings, he plans to pay off bills.
