GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A Gainesville resident has satisfied his need for speed, thanks to a spectacular prize from the Georgia Lottery.

Hans Deneergaard won a brand new Cadillac CTS coupe by playing the instant game Cadillac Riches.

"I just purchased the ticket on a whim," said the 54-year-old business analyst. "I stopped and decided to purchase two tickets, and they both turned out to be winners."

Deneergaard bought his lucky tickets at Harmony Church Chevron in Dawsonville. The other ticket -- the one that didn't win him a car -- netted him $10.

"I was stunned. I showed it to the clerk to verify, and he said, 'Yeah, you won a Cadillac!'" Deneergaard said. "I went online and did some research and started drooling."

Georgia Lottery representatives presented Deneergaard with the keys to his new ride Wednesday at Heritage Cadillac in Morrow.
