Byrd claimed his prize Feb. 10 at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.

Mega Star Food Mart #0003, 1842 Mack Smith Road in Rossville, sold the winning ticket.

"I didn't have my glasses with me, so I scanned it and showed it to the clerks," he said. "Their eyes got big."

A meat cutter, the lucky winner has one adult son.

"I'm going to pay off bills, and buy a new truck," Byrd shared.
