SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Purchasing a Georgia Lottery instant ticket was a grand slam for an Effingham County man, who won big. Mathew McGee, 45, won a $1 million top prize playing the instant game $10 Million Cash Spectacular.

While stopping for a cup of coffee at Sommers on 5815 Waters Ave. in Savannah, McGee purchased his lucky ticket.

"It wouldn't have happened, but I had a customer to reschedule an appointment," said McGee, an exterminator. "I looked at the ticket for 20 minutes, then I rescheduled the rest of my day."

The lucky winner, who celebrates a birthday this week, has four children.

"It will definitely help out. I plan to squirrel some back," McGee shared.
