Claudia Sosa-Mondragon scratched off a $20 ticket and took home the $2 million top prize.
Sosa-Mondragon bought her Ultimate 7’s ticket from the Ready Mart on North Broad Street in Seagrove.
She claimed her prize Monday at the lottery headquarters in Raleigh and had the option of taking the $2 million as an annuity of $100,000 a year over 20 years, or a lump sum of $1.2 million. She chose the lump sum of $1.2 million.
Ultimate 7’s launched in May of this year with four $2 million top prizes and eight $100,000 prizes.
One $2 million top prize and three $100,000 prizes remain to be won.
Ticket sales from scratch-off games make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $900 million per year for education.
