An East Cobb convenience store recently sold a winning lottery ticket that netted a Marietta man a $743,000 prize.
Con Burgener matched all five winning numbers in the Feb. 23 Fantasy 5 drawing and claimed his prize Tuesday.
He bought the ticket at the CITGO Food Mart, located at 4360 Roswell Road.
Winning numbers for the drawing were: 1-18-19-20-28. Burgener used the game’s Quik Pik option to generate his lucky combination.
