Perry bought the $30 ticket when she stopped by Phill’s Quick Stop on Dunn-Erwin Road in Dunn.
She claimed her prize today (Monday) at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. She had the choice of taking a $1 million annuity that has 20 payments of $50,000 a year or a lump sum of $600,000. She chose the lump sum. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $417,015.
Extreme Millions launched in December 2016 with four $10 million prizes and 22 $1 million prizes. Two $10 million prizes and 12 $1 million prizes remain.
