Dashing through the dough: Columbus man wins $750K

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

ATLANTA – A Columbus man is dashing through the dough this holiday season! Eugene Fluellen Sr., 50, won $750,000 playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Jingle Jumbo Bucks.

“This is going to be a great Christmas,” he exclaimed. “The best one I ever had.”

Fluellen purchased and scratched his top prize ticket at Jerry’s Food Mart, 3874 Saint Mary’s Road, Columbus.

“I just started shaking,” he said.

A textile worker, Fluellen is married with three children.

“I’m going to pay my house off and get the truck I always wanted,” he shared. “It feels great.”

Fluellen also hopes to “do a little traveling.”
