ATLANTA – A Chattooga County dealership worker has located a giant Georgia Lottery prize. Bradley Bowman of Summerville won a $50,000 top prize playing the popular instant game Jumbo Bucks Classic.
“I just went in and bought one ticket,” explained Bowman, 22. “I play from time to time.”
The lucky winner scratched his ticket in the car when he purchased it at Discount Food Mart, 13900 Highway 27 in Trion.
“I’m very happy,” Bowman exclaimed.
He has no immediate plans for his prize.

All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program.
