NC residents split $1 million lottery winnings
FRANKLIN, N.C. (FOX Carolina) - Two North Carolina residents tried their luck on a $10 scratch-off ticket and won $1 million.
Constance Philpott and Sean Kahoe purchased their VIP Platinum ticket from N&N Express on East Main Street in Franklin.
When they took the winning ticket to headquarters they decided to split the lump-sum amount so they can both receive $300,000. After required state and federal withholdings, they each took home $213,751.
The VIP Platinum game debuted in March with five $1 million top prizes and two $1 million prizes remain to be claimed.
