COPY-Auburn man wins $1 million from scratch-off ticket

ATLANTA Georgia Lottery officials say an Auburn painter won a (m) million dollars from a scratch-off ticket.

Jefferson Shaw formally was presented an oversized check with his winnings by lottery officials yesterday.

Shaw purchased the instant game $200 (m) Million Cash Spectacular ticket last month at Big H Quick Mart in Lawrenceville.

He won the game's top prize.

Lottery officials say Shaw is still thinking about how to spend his winnings but said he is going to -- quote -- "try to do good with it."
