Tossed Ticket Worth $250,000

Dawsonville, Ga (AP) A 24-year-old Dawsonville man has won $250,000 playing Mega Millions with his winnings from a tossed ticket.

“I didn’t realize you could win $3 for matching one number plus the Mega Ball,” said Andrew Hunter, a server at a Taco Mac in Cumming. “I pulled it out of the trash and cashed it in for three more tickets.”

One of those tickets won him $250,000 from Tuesday’s drawing.

“I would have never bought that ticket if I hadn’t pulled the other ticket out of the trash,” he said. “I don’t think it’s really hit me yet.”

Hunter says he plans to invest most of his prize. He bought the winning ticket at Quik Trip,1655 Buford Highwayin Cumming.

Winning numbers for the drawing were: 3-6-24-30-33 and the Mega Ball was 21.
