DURHAM, NC (WSPA) – A North Carolina woman is celebrating her second big lottery win in less than two years.

Tate bought the $30 ticket at the Family Fare on Old Chapel Hill Road in Durham.

She claimed her prize Thursday at lottery headquarters in Raleigh, opting for the $600,000 lump sum. After taxes, that’s $424,509.
