RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery has some advice for the person who won a share of the $564 million Powerball jackpot.

Alice Garland says the person holding the winning ticket should sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe place and get some sound professional advice before heading to lottery headquarters Raleigh to pick up the check.

A statement from the state lottery said a Scotchman convenience store in the town of Shallotte (shah-LOWT’) in Brunswick County sold the ticket. The store is eligible for a $50,000 retailer incentive award for selling a winning jackpot ticket.

The winner has 180 days from Wednesday’s drawing to claim the prize. The win marks the fourth time that a North Carolina ticket has claimed a Powerball jackpot.
