ATLANTA – A federal government technology agent in Columbia County is celebrating a Georgia Lottery win. Ronald Allen of Harlem won a $40,000 prize from the May 18 Powerball drawing.
The father of two matched the first four winning numbers plus the Powerball from the drawing. Allen selected the Power Play option to multiply his winnings.
Murphy Express #8566, 224 Bobby Jones Expressway in Augusta, sold the winning Quik Pik ticket.
Winning numbers from the May 18 Powerball drawing were: 10-13-14-22-52 and the Powerball was 11.
Allen, 47, discovered his win the following day. He and his wife, Heather, have no immediate plans for the winnings.
Powerball tickets are $2 per play. Players can multiply prizes with the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Powerball will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
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.
