An Auburn, Ga., painter has won $1 million from a scratch-off ticket, Georgia Lottery officials said.

Jefferson Shaw formally was presented an oversized check with his winnings by lottery officials on Wednesday.

Shaw purchased the instant game $200 Million Cash Spectacular ticket last month at Big H Quick Mart in Lawrenceville. He won the game's top prize.

Shaw said he scratched the ticket in the store and yelled, "I just won a million dollars!"

The painter said he's still thinking about how to spend his winnings.

"This is a good thing. Im going to try to do good with it," he said, according to a Georgia Lottery statement.
