ATLANTA – Fulton County Courthouse custodian Larry Richardson recently tried his luck playing a Georgia Lottery instant game and he was surprised at the results. Mr. Richardson played $100 Million Cash Spectacular and won $50,000.
The Atlanta resident immediately told his sister about his good fortune. “She was hysterical. She started crying and everything,” Mr. Richardson described.
Mr. Richardson, 55, plans to use his winnings to move back to his home state of Virginia. He also plans to save some of his prize.
Four Seasons News, located at 44 Broad St. NW in Atlanta, sold the winning ticket.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.6 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs. These include Georgia’s HOPE scholarship program; a statewide, voluntary pre-kindergarten program for four-year-olds; and a wide range of technological and capital upgrades for the state’s schools, technical institutes, colleges, universities and public libraries.
