No. 9 matches up $20K prize for Rabun County winner

Friday, March 28, 2014

ATLANTA – Linda Arrington of Tiger has selected an exciting prize from the Georgia Lottery using her lucky No. 9. Arrington, 51, was selected as a big winner in the Georgia Lottery’s $1 & $2 Play It Again Second Chance Promotion.

She won a $20,000 prize recently in Atlanta.

As a monthly grand prize winner in the Georgia Lottery’s $1 & $2 Play It Again Second Chance Promotion, Arrington won a chance to select one envelope from 20, with prizes ranging from $5,000 to $100,000.

The envelope labeled No. 9 that Arrington chose contained a $20,000 prize.

“I picked No. 9 because it has special meaning to me,” Arrington explained. “My son and I were born in September, I was married in September, and my grandson was born on the ninth.”

Arrington considers the windfall “perfect timing” since she’d already planned on visiting her daughter, who is in the U.S. Air Force stationed in California.

“I feel very grateful and very lucky,” she shared.

Arrington and her husband, Stanley, together have five children and two grandchildren.
