ATLANTA – A new Georgia Lottery draw game has delivered a quarter-million dollar windfall for one lucky Adairsville man. Harold Finley, 62, won a $250,000 top prize from the April 3 All or Nothing midday drawing.
Finley did not match any of the numbers from the drawing, winning the top prize. He claimed his prize April 4 at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Dalton.
“I didn’t have a reaction, really,” said Finley, a father of four. “But I also didn’t have a clue that I’d won $250,000.”
Upon discovering his good fortune, Finley was overcome with joy.
“I took a couple of steps back, and I had a big grin on my face,” he said.
With his winnings, Finley intends to purchase a new townhouse for one of his daughters.
“I’m also going to do something for my wife like buy her a new car,” he shared.
Liquor Mart, 541 Highway 53 E. in Calhoun, sold the winning Quik Pik 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.
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.
