Dalton man captures $40K ‘bonanza’

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

ATLANTA – One Dalton man is celebrating a win from the Georgia Lottery. Brandon Cross, 29, won a $40,000 prize playing the new instant game $400,000 Bonanza.

Cross, a shipping manager, stopped for coffee when he decided to purchase the ticket at Kangaroo Express #3656, 220 Connector 3 in Dalton.

“I was on the phone with my wife at work,” he said. “She didn’t believe me. After it registered, I screamed.”

Feeling great about winning a prize, Cross and his wife, Holly, anticipate paying off their car note.

The Georgia Lottery instant game $400,000 Bonanza is loaded with prizes of up to $400,000.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14 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.
