ATLANTA – A Ball Ground pest control operator has captured a lush Georgia Lottery prize playing Fantasy 5. David Lawson, 56, is one of two winners from the April 13 Fantasy 5 drawing, matching all five numbers to each win a $261,766 jackpot prize.
Faz Corner, 12910 Highway 53 in Marble Hill, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket. The second jackpot winning ticket was sold in McCaysville.
“I found out the next day,” Lawson said. “I’m tickled to death, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Winning numbers from the April 13 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 20-27-30-33-34.
