ATLANTA – A Bulloch County man is celebrating a “giant” Georgia Lottery win. Serron Johnson, 38, played the instant game Giant Jumbo Bucks and won $150,000.
“I was just shocked,” said Johnson, a resident of Register. “I went crazy. I was very happy.”
According to Johnson, he will use some of his prize to pay bills.
“It feels really good,” he said.
Johnson purchased his lucky top prize ticket at A 2 Z Truck Stop, 8741 U.S. Highway 301 S., Statesboro.
