Loganville printing operator highlights $565K jackpot prize

Friday, March 28, 2014

ATLANTA – A Loganville printing machine operator has inked a big Fantasy 5 win from the Georgia Lottery. Joseph Palmer, 42, matched all five numbers from the March 18 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $565,097 jackpot prize.

Palmer purchased his winning Quik Pik ticket at Quicks Korner, 2324 Claude Brewer Road in Loganville.

Winning numbers from the March 18 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 1-6-20-32-37.

“I was getting my Coke, and I stopped and scanned my ticket,” he said. “I asked the clerk to read the numbers, too, to be sure.”

Winning feels indescribable, Palmer shared.

“Like jumping out of an airplane: an adrenaline rush,” he said.

The father of two intends to pay off bills and visit his mother with his winnings.
