China Grove woman wins $250K in lottery

CHINA GROVE — A China Grove woman has won $250,000 in the Mega Millions lottery.
Amy Rowland beat odds of 1 in 3.9 million when she matched all five white balls but not the yellow Mega Ball in the Oct. 8 drawing, a news release said.
“I feel very excited,” Rowland said as she collected her winnings on Wednesday, according to the news release. “I’m just in shock.”
After state and federal taxes were withheld, Rowland received a check for $170,004. She purchased her winning ticket at Steve’s Corner Store on N.C. 152 West in China Grove.
This Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot is $37 million if taken as an annuity or $25.2 million as a lump sum.
The lottery has raised more than $2.9 billion for education programs statewide, according to the news release. Details on how more than $32.5 million in lottery funds have been used in Rowan County are available on the “Where the Money Goes” page on the lottery’s website.
