Congrats to Gary Moses!

Congratulations to Gary Moses of Atoka, who became Tennessee’s 44th winner of $1 million or more after purchasing a Powerball ticket with Power Play for the August 15, 2009 drawing. Gary's $1 million ticket was purchased at The Keg in Millington.
“I didn’t think much about it until a friend called me and said a winning ticket had been sold at The Keg, which is where I buy my tickets,” said Gary, who is still in shock. “I just didn’t believe it.”
Gary is still trying to decide what to do with his prize money, but says some of it will come in handy for a trip he already had planned to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Good luck to Gary!
