Carolyn Brown of Walnut Cove will start her weekend on a high note after claiming the last top prize in the $250,000 Diamond Dazzler scratch-off game.
Brown bought the lucky $5 ticket at the Kangaroo Express on South Main Street in King. She claimed her prize Friday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $176,253.
$250,000 Diamond Dazzler launched in September 2017 with five top prizes of $250,000. Brown claimed the last top prize, which means the lottery will begin steps to end the game.
Ticket sales from instant games like $250,000 Diamond Dazzler make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $600 million a year for education.
