FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. -- Ocie Burns Jr. has claimed his $338,500 Georgia Lottery winnings.
The Fayetteville man bought the winning Fantasy 5 jackpot ticket from Helmer Hwy 85 in Riverdale, and won the March 11 drawing.
"I had the ticket sitting on my computer desk," Burns said. "It sat there for a week, and I decided to check it before throwing it away."
He was so surprised to have matched all five winning number, Burns said he checked the results repeatedly on Georgia Lottery's website.
Burns works as a quality editor for an aerosol plant. He plans to use his prize to pay off his home mortgage and invest with the remainder.
