Carl Boyd said he was breathless as he revealed the winning combination on the Ruby Red 7’s game card.
"It still hasn’t hit me entirely. It doesn’t seem real,” he said.
Boyd chose to take his winnings in a $600,000 lump sum, worth $408,003 after taxes. He said he'll use the winnings to pay off the mortgages of his mother and sister, then invest in his farm and save for retirement.
Boyd purchased his winning ticket at Mayo Marina Mart on Virgilina Road in Roxboro on Wednesday.
