ATLANTA – Randy LeCroy, 61, of Rome has won an exciting prize from the Georgia Lottery. LeCroy played the instant game $1,000,000 Benjamins and won a $100,000 prize.
“After I scratched the ticket, there it was,” the grandfather of four said. “I was stunned for a while.”
Maple Minit Shop, 3110 Maple Road S.E. in Lindale, sold the winning ticket, and LeCroy scratched it in his car.
The lucky winner and his wife, Diane, have three adult children.
“I want to pay bills and help family members,” LeCroy shared.
Last August, Maple Minit Shop sold a winning ticket worth $2 million to another resident in Floyd County.
The Georgia Lottery instant game $1,000,000 Benjamins is a $10 ticket loaded with cash prizes of up to $1 million.
