FIRST PAYMENT IN MILLION DOLLAR MCDONALD’S WINNER

A local man will receive $50,000 each year for 20 years, all from buying a drink at Greenville McDonald's.  Harold Kious Jr. uncovered one of only two boardwalk game pieces in the United States and Canada during McDonald’s recent Monopoly promotion.  Kious received word from McDonalds that his first payment will arrive this week.  Kious told WGEL it will make for a very merry Christmas.  Kious also said his picture will likely be used in advertising for McDonald’s as one of their grand prize winners.
