ATLANTA – A winning ticket worth a half-million dollars was sold in Vidalia. Shyam Discount, located at 405 E. First St. in Vidalia, sold a winning ticket from the instant game Hidden Treasure with a $500,000 top prize.

The winner, Gitaben Patel of Vidalia, claimed her prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Savannah.

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