ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany used car dealer Johnny “Mac” George Jr. of Leesburg matched all five numbers from the August 15 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $127,143 jackpot prize.

County Line Foods, at 104 Philema Road in Albany, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.

George, owner of Mac George Motorcars, claimed his prize Monday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Tifton.

“I looked at it 10 times and got my wife to check,” he said. “We danced around, high-fived and chest-bumped each other.”

The lucky winner and his wife, Kelli, have an 18-year-old son.

“I’m going to let it sit in the bank and spend it wisely,” said George, 53.

Winning numbers from the Aug. 15 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 2-7-14-23-27.
