ATLANTA- Carolyn Hancock decided to play the new Georgia Lottery instant game Mustang Money when she heard that someone recently won a car. Mrs. Hancock purchased a ticket and won the $75,000 top prize.
The Nashville resident could hardly believe her luck when she scratched her ticket while sitting in the car. She took the ticket home to look at it again before she could believe that she was a winner. “I just wanted to verify it,” Mrs. Hancock said.
The 49-year-old works as a store manager. She and her husband, James, will use her winnings to purchase land for their home.
The winning ticket was purchased at Discount Corner. The store is located at 302 S. Davis St. in Nashville.
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.
