OK, so who is it? Someone in Boone is over a half-million dollars richerif they can find their lottery ticket and make their way to Raleigh. Monday night, the Pick 5 entry matched the numbers2-4-21-28-34and the take is $581,760. Prior to the win, the jackpot rolled over nine times in a row. NC Education Lottery officials say the lucky ticket was sold at Wilco #281 on N.C. 105, and beat odds of 1 in 575,757 to match all five numbers.
