Lottery Winner Plays Late Wife's Birthdate

A man in Georgia hit the lottery jackpot thanks to numbers that are near and dear to his heart.

David Greeson's wife, Kathy, recently passed away from lymphoma cancer.

Ever since her death, Greeson has played with numbers that represent her birthday and their anniversary. After three months, he finally won!

Since his wife loved to travel, Greeson says he'll use the $78,000 to visit places where they created so many memories.

Even though Greeson says the money is a nice bonus, ultimately, the jackpot was matching those numbers.
