Gwinnett Co. data manager supplied with $1M prize

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

ATLANTA – A manager for a data company has accessed control of an exciting prize from the Georgia Lottery. Hugh Allen Hamley of Hoschton has won a $1 million prize from being selected as the winner from the Super Millions Second Chance Drawing.

“I’m a big fan of that ticket,” explained Hamley, 55. “I’ve won a large amount on it.”

The father of three is no stranger to winning the lottery. He won a $10,000 prize in 2010 as a Maximum Green Monthly Extra Chance Drawing winner.

Hamley is happy to cash in on a second prize.

“I got a call from a friend in Tennessee who saw my name on the news,” he recalled. “I checked on the computer, and I was antsy trying to figure out what to do.”

Winning the latest prize has Hamley thinking about retirement.

“I’ve been thinking about the type of lifestyle I want to have when I retire,” he shared. “But I’m going to stick to my plan and continue working.”

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.
