Winning Lottery Ticket with Pile of Money Isolated on White Background.

What’s better than winning the lottery? How about spinning to win even more money! That’s what happened to Rosa Lilly of Mount Gilead. She had the chance to spin a giant prize wheel at the Bigger $pin Live Event on Wednesday. And with that lucky spin, she landed a $2 million lottery prize. That was the top prize offered in the event.

According to a press release by the North Carolina Education Lottery, Lilly told her daughter the night before that she was going to win the $2 million. “I just had a feeling,” Lilly said. The 67-year-old is the first $2 million winner of the Bigger $pin Live Event.

Lilly bought her $10 Bigger $pin scratch-off from Wilder Grocery on North Main Street in Mount Gilead. That awarded her $50,000. After her big spin Wednesday, she received an additional $1,950,000 for the total $2 Million lottery prize. After required state and federal tax withholdings, she took home $1,420,274.

The retired certified nursing assistant plans to use her winnings to take a vacation to the Bahamas, remodel her house, buy a new Lexus, and give some money to her church and her family.

Lilly is the fourth person to get a chance to win one of the $2 million prizes. In November, a Greensboro resident won $900,000 and a Durham resident won $400,000. The second event took place in January where the participant won $500,000.

There are still two more chances to win $2 million.
