ATLANTA – A CNN producer is making headlines after her second big Georgia Lottery win in recent months. Jennifer Hauser of Atlanta, 29, claimed a $1 million prize Monday.
Hauser won $100,000 in November.
“I was a little numb,” Hauser said of her recent win on the instant game 50X The Money. “I didn’t know what to think.”
Roswell Food Mart, located at 5645 Roswell Road N.E. in Atlanta, sold the top prize ticket.
Hauser bought a new car and paid bills when she won $100,000 playing the instant game Georgia Lottery Black in November.
She may use some of her current prize to purchase a new car for her mother.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.1 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
