One Tifton man is $100,000 richer after playing an instant lottery game.
66-year-old Alwyn Perryman won the money playing the game 50X The Money.
Perryman purchased his lucky ticket at Lil Pantry #8 on N. Tift Ave. in Tifton.
I just went in to buy a Mega Millions ticket, and I bought a couple of instant tickets, he explained. I scratched it in the store. I couldn TMt believe it.
Perryman is a farm equipment machinist and plans to retire next year.
The Georgia Lottery instant game 50X The Money has prizes of up to $1 million.
All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia TMs HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia TMs Pre-K Program.
