Dublin man celebrates $50K windfall

Monday, April 28, 2014

ATLANTA – A Dublin man has stockpiled a win worth thousands from the Georgia Lottery. Alfonza Atkins, 50, played the instant game 10X The Money – Holiday Edition, winning a $50,000 top prize.

An assistant supervisor of a shipping warehouse, Atkins anticipates paying off bills.

“I’ll have a fresh start,” he explained.

Z Mart, 1201 Telfair St. in Dublin, sold the winning ticket.

“I scratched it while at work,” he said. “I had to get it together. I couldn’t believe it.”

Atkins is a grandfather of two with two adult children with his wife, Mary.

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.
