Alpharetta man enjoys $250,000 Mega Millions prize

Tuesday, January 9, 2007

ATLANTA – Daniel Goodsell of Alpharetta is the winner of a $250,000 Mega Millions prize from the Dec. 29 draw.

Goodsell, 49, said he checked the winning ticket, which matched the first five winning numbers.

Results from the Dec. 29 draw were: 3-4-10-39-50 and the Mega Ball was 29. A homebuilder, Goodsell purchased the winning Quik Pik ticket from BP #02283, 1190 Old Roswell Road, Alpharetta.

He said he likes to purchase a ticket when buying his morning coffee. He is talking with family to decide what he will do with the money.

"We’ve all been laughing about it," said Goodsell, who has a wife and two sons. "It’s an exciting day."

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs including Georgia's HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia's Prekindergarten Program. More than 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
