Posted: May 7, 2013 - 12:31pm

A Grovetown convenience store sold a scratch-off lottery ticket that netted $500,000 for an Augusta.

Robert Bennett Jr., 37, won the $500,000 top prize playing the instant game Hidden Treasure on a ticket purchased at M&M Food Mart, 317 E. Robinson Ave.

“I stopped at the store for gas and bought tickets inside of the store,” Bennett said. “I was surprised.”

Bennett said he has no immediate plans for the winnings.

“I’m trying to figure it all out,” Bennett said.
