ATLANTA – A $100,000 Georgia Lottery prize is on the menu for one lucky grocery produce manager. Jeffrey Ryals of Kathleen won a $100,000 prize playing the new instant game Million $$ Match.
Ryals, 59, claimed his prize Thursday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Macon.
Kroger #0641, 774 Ga. Highway 96 in Bonaire, sold the winning ticket.
“I almost fell out,” he said. “I’m overjoyed! I think I’m dreaming.”
The lucky winner and his wife, Pam, have two adult children.
“I’ll probably buy a car, if not two,” Ryals shared.
The new Georgia Lottery instant game Million $$ Match is loaded with cash prizes, including top prizes of $1 million.
