ATLANTA – A Conyers electrician has struck a quarter-million dollar prize playing the new Georgia Lottery daily game All or Nothing. Ian Lavinier, 47, won a $250,000 top prize from the March 13 All or Nothing evening drawing.
Lavinier did not match any of the numbers from the drawing, winning the top prize. He claimed his prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
“I guess it was destiny,” he said of his good fortune, discovering the good news while at work. “I jumped up, my hat flew off of my head, and I could not stand. I was weak in the knees.”
The lucky winner anticipates investing his winnings.
“That’s my only goal right now,” Lavinier shared.
Valero Food Mart, 1836 Mountain Industrial Blvd. in Tucker, sold the winning ticket.
All or Nothing is a $2 game that offers prizes of up to $250,000 with four daily drawings.
Players can win the top prize by matching all or none of the 12 numbers drawn.
Tickets for All or Nothing went on sale statewide March 2.
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.
