This lottery winner is one happy camper.
A Rome, Georgia resident’s wish came true with the scratch of “Aladdin’s Lamp” a scratch game. Larry Ball, 49, played and won $40,000.
Ball was in the retail store with his wife, Jackie, when he scratched his lucky ticket.
I was excited, he said. She was just totally hysterical about it also.
Ball, who works in the retail industry, has five grown children and two grandchildren.
I plan on buying a new pair of glasses and paying a bill or two, he said.
Ball also hopes to use some of his winnings for travel. We may take an extra vacation this year, he shared. I’d like to go to Gulf Shores, Ala. They have a nice beach area and a state park for camping.
