Realtor opens house to big lottery win

Realtor opens house to big lottery win

ATLANTA -- A Georgia Lottery win will certainly add to the holiday festivities for one local Realtor.

Atlanta resident Christopher Christian became a winner for the second time when he matched all five winning numbers in the Nov. 24 Fantasy 5 drawing, winning a $179,531 jackpot.

"I was stunned. I just sat there," Christian said. "I'm surprised I wasn't more gregarious."

The Quik Pik ticket was purchased Thanksgiving Day at Little Five Points Pharmacy on Moreland Avenue. The same shop also sold a Win for Life top prize in 2007, giving one lucky winner $52,000 a year for life.

A few weeks ago, Christian won $1,000 playing the Maximum Green instant game. He cashed that winning ticket at the kiosk at Georgia Lottery headquarters in downtown Atlanta.
