Weird numbers lead to lottery win for Eden man
Placeholder Image

An Eden man is happy he selected the Quik Pik option in Thursday’s Fantasy 5 drawing. Timothy Weik (pronounced Wike), 49, says he couldn’t have chosen the computer-generated combination that helped him win $54,701.

“I would have never picked those because those are weird numbers,” he said.

Winning numbers for the drawing were: 1-34-36-37-38.

Weik was having his morning coffee when he checked the draw results on the Georgia Lottery’s Web site.

“I had a loss of breath,” he said with a laugh.

According to Weik, he will use his winnings for “a little security and maybe a boat.”

Sweet T’s No. 0058, located at 1352 Highway 80 in Eden, sold the winning ticket.
