MOULTRIE, Ga. – A Moultrie man has struck a wave of good luck with two Georgia Lottery prizes in the same day. Donald Reeves first won a $500 prize followed by a $1 million prize while playing the new instant game Georgia Lottery’s 20th Anniversary Extravaganza.

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Reeves, 56, with an oversized check Wednesday at R & R Quick Stop, 1009 Fifth Ave. S.E. in Moultrie, where he purchased his lucky tickets.

“I just took a chance,” said Reeves, who celebrates a birthday this month. “I called over the store manager, and he checked. I was nervous, but it was a good nervous.”

Reeves, a floor technician at a health and rehabilitation center, has grown children with his wife, Liza.

Feeling good about his double windfall, the lucky winner has yet to make immediate plans.
