Toccoa produce manager wins fresh $1M prize

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

ATLANTA – One lucky Toccoa man is piling on winnings from the Georgia Lottery. Brandon Leverette, a grocery store produce manager, won a $1 million top prize playing the instant game Georgia Lottery Premium.

Circle M Food Shop #0012, 4504 Cornelia Highway in Lula, sold the winning ticket.

“I went to my truck and scratched it,” the 24-year-old said. “I almost had a heart attack.”

Leverette decided to play “on a gut instinct.”

“I’m still pretty speechless. It’s pretty surreal,” he said.

The lucky winner intends to invest his winnings and purchase a new car.

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 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
