AMERICUS, Ga. - A simple trip to run a few errands paid off in a big way for a trucker from Preston, Georgia.
Timothy Dukes stopped into Double D Fast Food on Felder Street in American, Georgia when decided to buy a $10 lottery scratch-off ticket.
When he scratched off the 50X The Money scratcher, Dukes was shocked to discover he had won a top prize of $1 million.
“I was sweating,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it.”
Dukes said that he plans to share his winnings with his family.
