article2_20141010When Plains, Georgia truck driver Kenneth Mooney, 57, went into a local gas station to buy a lottery ticket the clerk nicknamed him “Big Money,” most likely a play on his last name. The nickname turned out to be rather fitting when Mooney won $3 million on a Georgia Lottery Scratch Off Ticket. The best part about this particular winning ticket is that Mooney won’t have to pay taxes on the $3 million because he won it on a game called $3,000,000 Taxes Paid where the lottery pays the taxes. On all big lottery wins, the United States federal government taxes 25% and the state of Georgia also takes 6% of the win. Not having to pay taxes is like a second win for Mooney.

Mooney and his wife, Debbie, have four grown children and nine grandchildren. Mooney plans to use the winnings to buy a new home and new pickup truck. He also plans to put money into a trust for his grandchildren. He hopes to take a hunting vacation in South Texas soon.
