ALBANY, Ga. – One Albany man is celebrating a plentiful Georgia Lottery prize. William Posey, 21, won a $400,000 top prize playing the instant game $400,000 Grant.
The winner claimed his prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
According to Posey, he purchased a ticket and scratched the middle line first, discovering he won.
“I was wide open,” the father of four recalled. “I could have jumped over a fence.”
Fast Lane Food Mart, located at 3000 Sylvester Road in Albany, sold the winning ticket.
“I’m going to put this toward something good like (investments) for my kids,” Posey shared. “I want to buy a car, a truck and a new home.”
