October 25th, 2013

A Georgia Lottery winner has won a cool $1 million prize playing Powerball in Georgetown. Frank Stokes Jr., 46, matched the first five numbers from the Oct. 9 drawing, winning a $1 million prize.

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Stokes of Eufaula, Ala., with an oversized check Wednesday at Yogi Food Mart, 763 U.S. Highway 82 in Georgetown, the store where the winning ticket was sold.

While sitting in his car, Stokes checked the Georgia Lottery's mobile website for the results of the Powerball drawing.

"I was so excited, I had to check," he said. "I got online and saw I'd won $1 million."

A transportation manager, Stokes has two children, one in junior high and another in elementary school.

With his winnings, he intends to save for their college, and Stokes anticipates purchasing a new car for himself.

"I don't plan to do anything earth shattering. I want to invest and save the rest," he shared.
