— A Stem woman has claimed a $1 million prize in the North Carolina Education Lottery's "$100 Million Cash Spectacular" contest, officials said Wednesday.

Sherese Daley bought a ticket in the game and won $15, and she used part of her winnings to buy another ticket, officials said. That second $10 ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner.

Daley, a restaurant manager, is the fifth $1 million winner in the game. Others live in Farmville, Pfafftown, Charlotte and Burlington. Five more $1 million top prizes are still available in the game.

Daley already received her first annuity payment of $50,000, minus taxes, and she will receive a payment every February for the next 19 years, officials said.
