COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –  Phenix City man is in high spirits over winning a Fantasy 5 jackpot prize, a second win in just over a year.

John Tull matched all five winning numbers in the May 7 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $361,965 jackpot prize. He won a $2.5 million top prize playing the instant game Millionaire Jumbo Bucks in February 2010.

"I bought a house, I bought a car, and I helped people out," he said.

He purchased his Quik-Pik at Airport S-Mart in Columbus.

Tull said he does not have any immediate plans for his latest win.
