Atlanta man bags $250K prize from ticket sold in Peachtree City

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

ATLANTA – An Atlanta man is celebrating a tremendous windfall from an instant ticket he received as a gift. Arnold Brown received the Georgia Lottery instant ticket Gold as an early birthday gift and won a $250,000 top prize.

Kroger #0422, 1101 Peachtree Parkway N. in Peachtree City, sold the lucky ticket.

“I immediately scratched it off,” said Brown, 55, upon receiving the ticket. “It was on the last line, and I saw $250.”

Then, he saw the zeros that followed and was overwhelmed with joy.

“I’m going to let it soak in. It’s still too unreal,” he said.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $15 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 1.3 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
