Winning $557,000 Fantasy 5 ticket sold in Rossville

ATLANTA – A father of four has won more than a half-million dollar prize playing the Georgia Lottery's Fantasy 5. George Patterson, who lives in Chattanooga, TN., won a $557,385 jackpot prize from matching all five winning numbers in the June 15 Fantasy 5 drawing.

While he won just before Father's Day, Patterson intends to share his prize.

"I've got four daughters, and I will give it to them," said Patterson, 72. "I'm going to watch them enjoy it. It's the right thing to do."

Winning numbers from the June 15 Fantasy 5 drawing were 12-15-23-29-35. Sunset Market #0003, located at 600 Chickamauga Road in Rossville, sold the winning ticket.

In addition to sharing with his daughters, who are ages 50, 46, 42 and 37, Patterson anticipates purchasing a new car for himself. The lucky lottery winner lives with his wife, Ada Pearl, and has worked 53 years for The Rock-Tenn Co.

 "I'm just thankful I was able to win," he shared. "Today is my day."
