McMinn County lottery ticket is a Million Dollar Winner

NASHVILLE (WDEF) – A Tennessee lottery player from Georgetown has turned an instant winner ticket into $1,000,000.

Donald “Shane” Allen played the Million Dollar Winner game over the weekend.

He won $40.

Then he brought it back to the Murphy USA on Decatur Pike in Athens to case in $20 and pick up another ticket.

That ticket won him the cool million.

“I sat in the car for 15 minutes staring at the ticket, and I thought it was a dream,” Allen said.

He told lottery officials that he was considering spending the money on his business or maybe just save it.
