COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One Chattahoochee Valley man is $1 million richer.

Frank Guthrie, 55, from Seale, AL claimed his $1 million prize on Jan. 27, after winning the prize from the $10 Million Cash Spectacular instant game.

Guthrie said he scratched the ticked in the store and showed his findings to the store's cashier.

"The guy next to me overheard, and he was more excited than I was," Guthrie said. "He was running around screaming and flailing his arms. It was kind of funny."

Guthrie said a portion of the winnings will go toward his retirement and some will go toward a long-desired trip to Ireland and the Isle of Wales, "Where my papa's kinfolk come from."
