Concord man wins $1 million lottery prize
RALEIGH – Stephen Floyd of Concord saw a $10 purchase of a scratch-off ticket multiply into a $1 million win.
Floyd bought his 50X the Cash ticket after he stopped to get gas at BP Food Mart on Sugar Creek Road in Charlotte.
He had a choice of taking the $1 million as an annuity of $50,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $600,000. He chose the lump sum and after tax withholdings took home $424,503.
The 50X the Cash game was started in February with four top prizes of $1 million. One top prize remains to be claimed.
The second of four drawings is scheduled June 5 and offers one top prize of $50,000, eight prizes of $5,000, and 25 prizes of $500. Players have until May 31 to enter.
