Dalton, Ga., man claims $1 million lottery prize

ATLANTA — Dalton resident Charles Shaw, a door frame inspector for a car manufacturer, won a $1 million prize playing the instant game 50X The Money.

Kankus Express #0101, 2958 Cleveland Highway in Dalton, sold the winning ticket, according to a new release from the Georgia lottery.

“I went in and got a Coke and a ticket,” said Shaw, 52. “I scratched it in the truck.”

Shaw, who has no immediate plans, said that his win seems unbelievable.

“I’m pretty calm. I don’t think it has sunk in yet,” he said in the news release.
