Stone Mountain man wins $15K with lucky pick

Friday, April 25, 2014

ATLANTA – A Stone Mountain man secured a $15,000 prize from a Georgia Lottery second chance promotion. Michael Jones, 58, was selected as a big winner in the Georgia Lottery’s $1 & $2 Play It Again Second Chance Promotion.

He won his prize this week in Atlanta.

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

He chose envelope No. 14 and won a $15,000 prize.

“Seven is perfect, and 14 is double,” the lucky winner explained.

Jones described his experience as overwhelming.

“It’s a little something extra, and I can’t ask for more than that,” he said.

Jones has five adult children and eight grandchildren. He retired five years ago, having worked 32 years for Georgia Power.

With his windfall, Jones anticipates restoring a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $15.3 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.
