ATLANTA – A Georgia Lottery prize worth thousands is one that one Milledgeville pest control technician won’t exterminate. Patrick Ingram, 46, instead is treating himself to a $30,000 prize playing the instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid.
Mini Food Mart, 606 Powelton Ave. in Sparta, sold the winning ticket.
“I was working, and I stopped in the store while on my break,” Ingram said. “I scratched it in the store.”
A termite specialist, Ingram intends to save his winnings.
The Georgia Lottery instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid is loaded with cash prizes of up to $3 million, taxes paid. Players can enter non-winning tickets into the $3,000,000 Taxes Paid Second Chance Promotion. For more information, visit www.galottery.com.
