The Georgia Lottery said May 25 that Colbert, 46, played the Georgia Lottery instant game $100 Million Cash Blast and won $1 million.
“I feel pretty lucky,” he said.
Colbert bought the top prize ticket at Chevron Party Store at 6105 Highway 155 N. in Stockbridge. After scratching his ticket at the store, Colbert went home to share the news with his wife, Janis.
“I couldn’t sleep and my heart has been racing,” she said. “It’s still shocking.”
Colbert said he will invest his prize money but first up is a vacation with his wife and four children, daughters Shantricia and Tiyuna and sons Donald and Breon.
