ATLANTA – A Whitfield County man is feeling on top with a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Steven Nicholson of Dalton was selected as a weekly winner from the $3,000,000 Taxes Paid Weekly Extra Chance drawings, taking home $20,000 after taxes.

“I haven’t slept a wink,” said Nicholson, 44. “I feel ecstatic.”

The lucky lottery winner anticipates purchasing a new vehicle and paying off bills.

The Georgia Lottery instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid is loaded with cash prizes of up to $3 million after taxes.
