Laid-Off Wilson County Man, Wife Win $1 Million

An unemployed Wilson County man and his wife are $1 million richer, after making a big win in the North Carolina Education Lottery.

Ricky and Regina Whitaker of Stantonsburg bought the lucky ticket on Tuesday, the first day of the new "$200 Million Extravaganza" game. They bought the $20 ticket at the Stantonsburg Friendly Mart on Moyton Drive.

The million dollar ticket was actually the couple's second winning ticket. Their first ticket won them $25 so they decided to use their winnings and try their luck again.

The couple will receive 20 annual payments of $50,000, less taxes. They've already received their first check of $34,006.40.
