Journey leads to $500K win for Fort Stewart man

Friday, June 15, 2012

ATLANTA – A Fort Stewart man headed home from a collegiate journey has picked up a half-million dollar win from the Georgia Lottery. Khot Souimaniphanh, 39, won a $500,000 top prize playing the instant game Cash Deluxe.

Souimaniphanh had taken his son to college orientation in Dawsonville when he stopped at Chevron Food Mart, 104 Highway 400 S. in Dawsonville, and purchased a ticket.

“I just walked in there looking for a ticket and that was the one,” the lucky winner said.

Souimaniphanh bought it on his way home and scratched it in Fort Stewart.

He claimed his prize Wednesday at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Savannah.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.4 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.
