Friday, September 7, 2012

ATLANTA – A great-grandmother has hit the road home since winning a prize from the Georgia Lottery. Betty Robinson is heading back to Cincinnati, Ohio since winning a $25,000 top prize over the Labor Day holiday playing the instant game Some Like It Hot!

Robinson, 74, was visiting family in Atlanta when she purchased the lucky ticket at Sun Smokehouse, 2050 Lawrenceville Highway in Decatur, at North DeKalb Mall.

She claimed her prize at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton following the holiday.

“It was my family who were with me that suggested that I play it,” she said.

Robinson has five adult daughters and a combined 14 grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She plans to take a trip to Orlando.

“I’ve wanted to go,” the lucky winner said.
