A Brunswick County woman became the first to win a top prize in a new lottery game. 

Jenine Coffield, who lives in the Ash community, paid $20 for a ticket at Calabash Food & Fuel on Beach Drive Southwest in Calabash and won a $2 million top prize in the new Ultimate 7's game, according to a press release from the N.C. Education Lottery. 

Coffield claimed her prize on Thursday, choosing a $1.2 million lump sum and taking home $849,006 after taxes, according to the release. 

Ultimate 7's launched this month with four top prizes of $2 million and eight $100,000 prizes. There are still three top prizes and six $100,000 prizes waiting to be won. 

Ticket sales from scratch-off games like Ultimate 7’s make it possible for the lottery to raise more than $725 million a year for education. For details on how $5.4 million raised by the lottery made a difference in Brunswick County last year, visit nclottery.com and click on the “Impact” section.
