Couple Thought Winning Lotto Call was Prank

A  couple in North Carolina is celebrating a major win after thinking the  phone message informing them of their one-million-dollar lottery prize  was a prank.

Eddie Nations was in shock when he  received the phone message, but after calling the North Carolina  Education Lottery back he realized the win was a reality. He said he  began crying and shaking in disbelief.

Nations, who was one of over a million other entries in the Extreme  Millions Second-Chance drawing, opted to collect his winnings as a lump  sum. He was given the option of receiving the prize in the form of  annual payments, 50-thousand-dollars for 20 years, or a lump sum of  600-thousand-dollars. Source: Fox 8
