$1 million NC Match 5 winner
Out of Greensboro, NC, Adrienne Wynn won $1 million on a Mega Millions ticket for the March 30 drawing. Apparently, Wynn woke up in the middle of the night and thought, “Let me call and check the ticket.”
Fortunately she did because the $2 ticket matched all five white balls. Wynn said, “After I found out it was real, I was jumping up and down on my bed like it was a trampoline. If I could have done a cartwheel without breaking anything I would have.”
There was no hesitation for Wynn on claiming her prize the next day, taking the lump-sum amount of $707,501 after taxes and withholdings.
Mega Millions online
While Wynn called to check her tickets, if you play the lottery online in Pennsylvania, you are automatically notified of winners. The PA online lottery pays out most winning tickets directly to your player account along with the automatic notification.
Otherwise, there are other states where you can purchase online lottery tickets:
- New Hampshire
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- New York
Different state lotteries benefit various state-run programs. In the Keystone State, the PA Lottery benefits older Pennsylvanians. Please play responsibly.
