Marshallville officer spots $1M prize in Fort Valley

Friday, April 5, 2013

ATLANTA – A Marshallville police officer has won a cool $1 million Georgia Lottery prize while cruising in Peach County. Tinichia Story, 25, won her prize playing the instant game Maximum Green.

Story, who lives in Montezuma, claimed her prize Tuesday at the Georgia Lottery’s District Office in Macon.

“I went into the store and decided to get a ticket,” Story explained. “I scratched the ticket off and couldn’t believe it.”

Family Food Mart, 402 S. Camellia Blvd. in Fort Valley, sold the winning ticket.

“It doesn’t feel real,” said Story, who has a Yorkshire Terrier puppy named Toby. “My nieces and nephews will be taken care of, and Toby will have a tote bag added to his collection.”

The Georgia Lottery instant game Maximum Green is loaded with prizes of up to $5 million. Georgia Lottery players can enter non-winning tickets into the monthly Maximum Green Extra Chance Drawings to win one of 10 monthly prizes of $10,000. Visit www.galottery.com for more information.

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