When Person arrived at NC Lottery headquarters Monday to collect his prize, he had a decision to make.  He could choose to receive the prize as an annuity of $250,000 over 20 years or a lump sum of $3 million.  He chose the lump-sum amount of $3 million and, after required state and federal tax withholdings, took home $2,130,309.
