Albany--One south Georgia man has plenty to smile about. He's celebrating a lifetime of financial security thanks to the Georgia lottery.

This afternoon representatives with the Georgia Lottery presented 56-year-old Broadus Bailey with a check for $1,000.

He purchased the winning ticket at the Kwickie-Flash station on East Oakridge Drive in Albany.

Bailey correctly selected the winning numbers in the July 8th Win for Life drawing. That means he'll receive one-thousand dollars a week...which is $52,000 every year for the rest of his life.

"I was blessed that's all I can say. Reporter: What do you plan to do with the money? Pay off some bills," says Broadus Bailey.

"Lots of people come in to try and win, this is our third big winner since we started doing the lottery here," says Erin Truxell

Bailey is the second person in the state to win the Win For Life's grand prize.
