ATLANTA – Rhonda Tompkins of Atlanta is celebrating a $20,000 Georgia Lottery win. Tompkins, 51, is the first big winner in the Georgia Lottery’s Play It Again monthly drawings.
“Unbelievable,” Tompkins said. “This is totally unexpected.”

The envelope Tompkins chose contained a $20,000 prize.
“I’m going to pay a few things off, help my husband with a thing or two, and do a few things around the house,” said Tompkins, a property manager.
