Area man wins $1 million playing instant game

From Georgia Lottery

BUENA VISTA, GA -  One 25-year-old in Buena Vista is toasting to winning a tidy sum from the Georgia Lottery. Eric Johnson won $1 million playing the instant game $100 Million Cash Blast.

Buena Vista Services, 111 E. Sixth Ave. in Buena Vista, sold the winning ticket. Johnson scratched it in the store.

"I was speechless," he recalled. "I was sick to my stomach with butterflies."

Johnson works building modular homes.

"I had just gotten off from work," he said. "Something just told me to stop at the store."

He has no plans at the moment for his lottery win.
