ATLANTA – Trevor Johnson is celebrating a win from the Georgia Lottery. Johnson, a Macon resident, won a $50,000 top prize playing the popular instant game Jumbo Bucks Classic.
The 21-year-old said he’d gotten off from work as an insulation contractor when he purchased the ticket at Flash Foods #0147, 4700 Hartley Bridge Road in Macon.
“I got a wild hair,” he recalled. “I scratched it in the car. I wasn’t expecting that at all.”
The lucky winner is a new father with an 8-month-old daughter.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.8 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 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
