Friday, March 8, 2013

ATLANTA – A lucky winner is making room for a bulky Georgia Lottery prize. Tommy McMahan, 46, of Cleveland, Tenn., matched all five numbers from the Feb. 18 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $50,000 jackpot prize.

Wilco #3005, 2111 U.S. 41 Highway N.E. in Calhoun, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.

The winning numbers from the Feb. 18 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 3-7-16-22-28.

“I found out while at lunch,” said McMahan, a self-employed dump truck driver. “I discovered it on my cellphone.”

The lucky winner, who has a wife and daughter, anticipates paying off bills and taking a small vacation with his windfall.

“I feel really good. I’m excited,” he exclaimed.
