FARMVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A Pitt County woman is $250,000 richer after buying a scratch-off ticket.

Rosalyn Williams, of Farmville, bought two $250,000 Money Match tickets from Vapor Tobacco & More on East Marlboro Road Sunday. It was after scratching one, that the nursing home cook found she had won the grand prize.

Williams claimed her prize Tuesday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh. After federal and state tax withholdings, she took home $176,876.

The $250,000 Money Match game launched in November, and two of the four top prizes still remain.
