ATLANTA – A towering Georgia Lottery prize has made its way into one Cartersville man’s backyard. Lynn Pack, self-employed in backyard fencing, won the $225,091 jackpot prize from the Nov. 30 Fantasy 5 drawing from matching all five winning numbers.
Jo Jo’s Market, 851 Euharlee Road S.W. in Euharlee, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
Winning numbers from the Nov. 30 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 5-6-8-16-19.
Pack especially is excited about his windfall since he’ll be celebrating his 62nd birthday this month.
He and his wife, Geralyn, have two sons.
“We’re both close to retirement, so this will supplement our income,” Pack shared.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.8 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program.
