ACWORTH — An Acworth man won a $232,000 jackpot prize after purchasing a Fantasy 5 ticket that had five winning numbers.
Roy Pulliam, 71, is a Lockheed Martin industrial engineer and has four children and six grand-children with his wife, Dianne.
Pulliam discovered his win on the Georgia Lottery’s website and the winning numbers from the July 21 Fantasy 5 drawing were 3-6-11-14-23.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Pulliam said. “I jumped up and down, hollered and screamed.”
Pulliam made a checklist for projects he wants to complete.
