Groom-to-Be, $7 Million Richer

A Hall County man and his girlfriend may now get the wedding of their dreams.


Cody Locantro of nearby Gainesville was selected as a winner from the Oct. 30 $7 Million Jackpot Extra Chance Promotion, winning a $7 million prize, according to a press release.

Locantro, 35, and a groom-to-be, plans to wed his longtime girlfriend.

“We’re engaged, but we haven’t set a date,” he said.

Family and friends called Locantro to share the good news following the results of the televised drawing.

“I didn’t believe it,” he said. “It’s a lot to take in.”

Locantro, who works at a manufacturing plant, anticipates planning for his family’s future.

“We have a 3-year-old son, so I want to set up a trust fund for school,” he said.

Locantro was presented with an oversized check by Georgia Lottery representatives Thursday at the corporation's district office in Duluth.

"To win $7 million dollars feel great," he said. "I'm very humbled."

Aside from investing his winnings, Locantro plans to buy a new home and car for he and his finace'.

Georgia Lottery players submitted non-winning tickets from the instant game $7 Million Jackpot for entry into the drawing.
