North Carolina Education Lottery officials announced Monday that a Charlotte woman won a very large prize from a new lottery game according to WCNC Charlotte.

On South Boulevard Faith Granwehr bought a $5 million Ultimate ticket from the Harris Teeter. When she scratched it off she was met with a surprise. Granwehr scored one of the five $5 million grand prizes.

Granwehr decided to take home the cash lump sum of $3 million. Her other option was an annual payment of $250,000 over 20 years. She took home $2.1 million after paying state and federal taxes.

The $5 million Ultimate game debuted in March. The game started with five $5 million prizes along with 15 $100,000 prizes. Granwehr was the first person to claim one of the $5 million prizes.
