Lake Park - The holiday season has lottery sales climbing in South Georgia.

Lottery tickets are a popular choice for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers. Convenience store owners say they always see an increase in lottery sales this time of year, especially with the holiday games.

"Holiday Cash is a one dollar ticket, Seasons Greetings is another one and Fosty the Dough man is also popular.  They have a few others but those have been our top three selling lottery tickets," said Michael Smith, owner of Smitty's.

Smith says lottery sales were slow Monday because many people are still off for the holidays, but he expects business to pick back up later this week as many customers come back to cash in their winnings.
