Baldwin Co. woman spreads contagious smile with $25K

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

ATLANTA – News of a Georgia Lottery prize in Baldwin County has gone viral, and the smile of one physician’s office manager has become infectious. Terresa Smith of Milledgeville has won a $25,000 prize playing the new instant game Cash Payout.

“I just stopped and bought a ticket,” said Smith, 40. “I just picked one.”

Smith, who intends to save her winnings, claimed her prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Macon.

Discount Mart, located at 1660 N. Columbia St. in Milledgeville, sold the winning ticket. Smith scratched the lucky ticket in her car.

“It took about 15 minutes for me to realize that it was real,” she said. “It’s still unbelievable.”

Cash Payout is a $5 instant game loaded with cash prizes of up to $225,000.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.6 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.
