ATLANTA – A Brunswick commercial painter has won a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Charles White, 57, won a $1 million prize playing the instant game 50X The Money.
The lucky winner said he’s “shocked” over winning his prize.
“It still hasn’t hit me yet,” White said.
Tommy’s Corner, 6010 New Jesup Highway in Brunswick, sold the winning ticket.
White and his wife, Linda, anticipate purchasing a new home.
