Curious about KENO!, Jefferson Co. woman wins $100K

Friday, July 6, 2012

ATLANTA – A Jefferson County woman has discovered  the Georgia Lottery draw game KENO! and its top prize. Latisha Hunt of Stapleton won a $100,000 prize playing KENO!

“I cashed in an instant ticket, went to the table and marked 10 numbers,” said Hunt. “When I was marking them I felt really confident, but I had no clue.”

Hunt, 38, picked her lucky numbers at M & A Mart & Gas, located at 1941 Washington Road in Thomson.

“When I saw that I’d won, I just jumped up and started hollering,” she said.

With a birthday later this month, Hunt anticipates celebrating with her 8-year-old son and her husband, Larry.

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.
