For John Hogan, lightning struck twice.

The 67-year-old from Griffin won the Fantasy 5 jackpot for the second time June 7. After matching all five numbers, Hogan won $61,122.

In February 2000, he won a Fantasy 5 jackpot of $75,270. With the February winnings, Hogan said he bought a new truck, installed a new roof on his home and took a vacation.

With this month's winnings, Hogan said he is not sure how he will spend it.

Hogan purchased the ticket at the S&M Grocery on Fayetteville Road in Griffin.

"Of course I was excited," he told Georgia Lottery media relations. "I told my sister, and she said, 'Whoop-tee-do.'"

Jerry Simmons of Toccoa and Jerry Etheridge of Macon each took home $378,090 from a May 31 Fantasy 5 jackpot split between five winners. The total May 31 jackpot was $1.89 million — the largest in Georgia Lottery Fantasy 5 history.

Simmons, a 72-year-old great-grandfather of four, said he and his wife's horoscopes included details on their finances. He purchased the ticket at the Royal Food Store on Ga. 106 in Toccoa.

Simmons told Georgia Lottery media relations he plans to invest his winnings.

Etheridge, 47, said he had a gut instinct that his five numbers were winners.

He told Georgia Lottery media relations that he plans to donate his vehicle to Goodwill and use his $378,090 to buy a few used vehicles.

Etheridge, who works at a motorcycle dealership, bought his winning ticket at the Interstate BP on Ga. 36 in Jackson.

Huge congratulations to every one of them!  Party

 

Awesome thing about the lottery is you can win as many times as you purchase a ticket that matches the draw.  Big Grin Angel

Good luck to everyone!

      QUOTE FROM ARTICLE: "Of course I was excited," he told Georgia Lottery media relations. "I told my sister, and she said, 'Whoop-tee-do.'"

      Was she quoting Adam Sandler by saying "whoop-tee-do" ? :)


      Congratulations, that is outstanding.

      I drove through GA around that time but everytime I tried to buy a ticket the machines were down.

      I am also wondering, were the same numbers played and won, or changed up from last time?

              Now I would say John Hogan is a lucky guy.

              Wouldn't be surprised if he won again.
