No foolin’: Fayetteville woman snags $1M lottery prize

April 1, 2019

Instead of celebrating April Fool’s Day with a joke, Quyen Le of Fayetteville is celebrating with a $1 million lottery prize.

Le stopped at the Food Lion on Roxboro Road in Oxford on Monday and bought a $20 Big Money Playbook.

She claimed her prize at lottery headquarters in Raleigh, taking the lump sum of $600,000. After federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $424,506.

The Big Money Playbook launched in December with three top prizes of $1 million, and one top prize remains. The playbook has six pages of unique games, marking the first time the lottery has offered a book with multiple games.
