John McGraw Receives His Lotto 5 Winnings from President and CEO Rebecca Paul

John McGraw spent a sleepless weekend waiting for Monday to arrive when he could visit the Nashville headquarters of the Lottery to claim his $455,776 Lotto 5 jackpot prize. John purchased his winning ticket at Sudden Service at 1001 Memorial Blvd. in Springfield, a retailer he visits often. “I go there almost every day on my way to or from work, and I’ve been lucky there more than once.” John said he’s won on instant tickets and Cash 3 in the past, “but never anything like this!” John plans to use his prize to “enjoy debt free living, invest wisely, and donate to a worthy cause.”
