$1M prize rolls out for lucky Chattooga County man

Thursday, February 21, 2013

ATLANTA – A Chattooga County man has netted a nifty prize from the Georgia Lottery. Robert Dalton of Trion won a $1 million top prize playing the instant game Monopoly Millionaire.

Trion Food Mart, 11 Ridgeway Drive in Trion, sold the winning ticket.

Dalton, 45, scratched it in the parking lot.

“It feels really good,” he said.

With his good fortune, Dalton intends to invest.

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.
