A gas station in Rincon is equipped with a lot of luck and a $2.5 million lottery winner to boot. BP, located at 101 S. Columbia Ave. in Rincon, sold a winning top prize ticket from the Georgia Lottery instant game Millionaire Jumbo Bucks.

“It’s good. Everything’s good,” store owner Vanu Patel said.

Paul Gillison of Rincon is the lucky lottery winner, who claimed his prize at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Savannah.

Another winning $2.5 million Millionaire Jumbo Bucks ticket was sold at Snack Barrel #0010, 115 Ebenezer Road in Rincon, in February.

News has spread quickly because more people are visiting the store, Patel said.

“It’s very good,” he said.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $12.5 billion to the state of Georgia for education.
