Cinco de Mayo has the chance to be an Evans man’s new favorite holiday.
Lottery officials announced Tuesday that Ricky Bell, 53, won $186,129 in the Fantasy 5 drawing from May 5.
Bell saw the draw results on the Georgia Lottery’s Web site and woke his wife, Wanda, with the news.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I thought I was seeing double.”
Bell claimed his prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery’s Augusta district office.
