Decatur man wins towering $2.5M prize

Thursday, May 23, 2013

ATLANTA – One lucky Georgia Lottery winner has picked up a multi-million dollar prize from an extra chance promotion. Timothy Finch of Decatur was selected as the winner of the $100 Million Lucky Fortunes Extra Chance Drawing, winning a $2.5 million prize.

The 49-year-old detail shop owner saw his name announced during the televised drawing Tuesday.

“I was looking at the television. I saw my name and just went to hollering,” Finch said. “I went through the house yelling, ‘I won!’”

Considering himself lucky, plans for Finch’s windfall include taking care of his family.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $14.3 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.
