Savannah Man Wins $27,000 on Ice Blue 7Â’s

Thursday, April 7, 2005

ATLANTA – Bernard Roberson was anything but blue after winning Ice Blue 7’s, a Georgia Lottery instant game. Mr. Roberson won the game’s $27,000 top prize and says, “I fell on the floor. Fell out! I was screaming and hollering.”

The 38-year-old purchased his lucky ticket at Timesaver #0047, located at 1402 E. Broad St. in his hometown of Savannah.

Mr. Roberson immediately called his sister with the exciting news. “She couldn’t believe it,” he says. “She had to see it. She thought it was an April Fool’s joke.”

According to Mr. Roberson, he’s going to save his winnings for his five-year-old daughter’s future. He also plans to take her to Disney World in June.

Mr. Roberson speaks highly of the lottery-funded prekindergarten program that his daughter attended. “It’s great. It really, really helps – I’m here to tell you!”

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.2 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
