Georgia Player “Repairs” His Finances, Wins $5,000,000 Playing a Scratch Card


A self-employed tire repairman from Rydal is driving off with a Georgia Lottery win. Michael Collum, 55, won a $5 million top prize playing the instant game Super Millions.

I just stopped and bought a couple of tickets, Collum said. I was shocked more than anything else.

I saw all of those zeroes rolling out of there, Collum recalled. I scratched it in the store.

The grandfather of eight said he’s happy as two or three larks.

Besides his grandchildren, Collum has five adult children with his wife, Janice. He has no plans at the moment for his lottery win but will consider semi-retiring.

I’m going to take it slowly to see what’s what, he shared. It’s very life changing.

You betcha.

And for the better.

Congratulations, dude.
