GAINESVILLE, Ga. — A Gainesville man's life may have been opened to new possibilities after winning a $1 million Georgia Lottery prize.

          If I was to win the lottery I would wish I found out about it in early evening rather than morning time. I would  be a little tired and wondering why I seem to be stuck in level 2 and then booya! I see the numbers that could make any man take a double take.

          Congrats to the Georgia man.
