ATLANTA – The excitement is building for a Macon man carrying away a load of a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Michael Nelson, a construction worker, has won a $125,000 top prize playing the instant game Las Vegas Game Show Experience.
Circle K Stores #6728, 5011 Romeiser Drive in Macon, sold the winning ticket.
“It feels good,” said Nelson, 50.
He intends to purchase a home with his winnings.
