“I’m pretty lucky,” said Goolsby, 32, as he claimed his prize at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta recently.

Goolsby purchased his lucky ticket from a Georgia Lottery Instant Ticket Vending Machine the Publix at 950 West Peachtree Street NW in Midtown Atlanta.

“I put in $20, but I intended to insert $10,” he explained. “I couldn’t get change, so I chose the ticket and scratched it in the car.”

The lucky winner couldn’t believe his eyes.

“I didn’t believe it. I just looked at it,” Goolsby said. “I just wasn’t sure it was real.”

Working in facilities management, Goolsby intends to purchase a new home and invest the remainder.
