Augusta nurse injects $2M lottery win

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

ATLANTA – An Augusta nurse has gotten a big dose of winning. Patricia Holloman, 50, won $2 million playing the Georgia Lottery game Millionaire Jingle Jumbo Bucks.

Holloman scratched the ticket at home Tuesday and claimed her prize later that day.

“I thought I was reading it wrong,” she said. “I kept looking at it. That’s a lot of zeroes.”

Married with two grown children and six grandchildren, Holloman hopes to cut back on her long work weeks.

“I work a lot of hours,” she emphasized. “Or, I should say, I worked a lot of hours.”

Holloman also hopes to get “a reliable car with an air conditioner.”

P J Food Store, located at 3184 Skinner Mill Road in Augusta, sold the lucky ticket.

Millionaire Jingle Jumbo Bucks is an instant game with prizes up to $3 million.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14 billion to the state of Georgia for education.
