Larry Moore, a professor at Columbus State University, won $225,000 in September playing the Georgia Lottery Fantasy Five game.
His winning numbers on Sept. 25 were 4-11,23-33-38.
"Its a Godsend," he said. "I'm like a lot of folks trying to make it week by week. I've got two kids out of the house and two still in. I've got bills to pay."
He said he might take a trip to someplace he's always wanted to go, perhaps, Alaska.
