      Father of four wins $400,000 before July 4th


      One Albany man is celebrating a plentiful Georgia Lottery prize just as the July 4 holiday approaches. William Posey, 21, won a $400,000 top prize playing the instant game $400,000 Grant.

      The lucky 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.


      Winning the prize will make for an even happier July 4 holiday celebration.

      "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."
