ATLANTA – A Mitchell County welder has plugged a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Daniel Aldridge of Pelham won a $50,000 top prize playing the instant game 10X The Money – Holiday Edition.
The 24-year-old picked the ticket while on his way to work. Kangaroo Express #3893, 301 U.S. 19 S. in Camilla, sold it.
“I stopped for a Red Bull, and I had a spare $20,” he said. “I felt lucky in that moment, and there it was!”
Aldridge jumped up and down over his good fortune.
“I was so happy, I couldn’t hold it together,” he said. “It’s amazing.”
The lucky winner anticipates purchasing a new Chevrolet Silverado for himself.
“I’m also going shopping for my son and daughter,” he shared.
