ATLANTA – A Douglasville man is applauding a large windfall from the Georgia Lottery with numbers selected from a Quik Pik. Dan Casteel, 63, matched all five winning numbers from the April 5 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning the $488,279 jackpot prize.
Winning numbers from the April 5 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 3-14-33-38-39.
Exxon Food Mart at 5040 Highway 5 in Douglasville sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
Casteel discovered the results while on the Georgia Lottery’s website. He claimed his prize April 6 at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
“This is one of the biggest events of my life,” Casteel said.
The lucky winner retired four years ago working in logistics for The Kroger Co. He and his wife have two adult children and four grandchildren.
“At my age, it feels so nice to have a nest egg,” Casteel said.
