FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Two men in Fayetteville have won $1 million each in lottery games this week.

The Fayetteville Observer reported (https://bit.ly/1yJnUU7) that Richard James won his million after he bought a $10 Jackpot game ticket from a store Thursday morning.

He chose to take a lump sum payment, which amounts to about $415,000 after state and federal taxes. James would not talk about what he planned to do with the money.

Army veteran George Brooks won a $1 million prize Wednesday playing the $200 Million Blowout game.
