A Thomasville man is celebrating his birthday with a big prize from the Georgia Lottery.
Wayne Sheets played the instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid and won a top prize of $3 million, taxes paid.
Sheets, an avid gardener, plans to purchase a farm with his winnings.
â€œIâ€™ll grow organic vegetables and raise free range turkeys and chickens for my personal use,â€ he said. â€œI have easy dreams.â€
Sheets, who recently celebrated his 57th birthday, purchased his lucky ticket in Thomasville. He scratched his ticket outside the store and returned to tell the storeâ€™s employees he had won.
â€œThe people in the store, and I danced a little jig,â€ Sheets said.
Now THIS is great gaming news! What do I do now?
