Camilla man wins 500K in Ga. Lottery

CAMILLA, GA (WALB) -

A Camilla electrician is half-million dollars richer after playing a Georgia Lottery scratch off game.

53-year-old Jack Delk won $500,000 after playing the instant game Cash Vault.

We tried to track down Delk Monday, but were unsuccessful.

We talked to the owner of Gary's Palm Park, where the winning ticket was sold.

He says Belk couldn't believe he won. The first question he asked to big winner was what he planned to do with the money.

"I said what is one thing you would want to do. He said I wanted to get my wife a new car, now she'll have it by the weekend," said Gary's Palm Park owner Daniel Gary.

Delk said he had just stopped in the store to get a Pepsi when he decided to play.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery has returned more than $13.8 billion to the state of Georgia for education.
