Florida man enjoys $20K Georgia Lottery win

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

ATLANTA – One lucky man from the Sunshine State has snapped up a top prize from the Georgia Lottery. Rickie Pleas, 49, played the new instant game Maximum Money Madness, winning $20,000.

A resident of Lloyd, Fla., Pleas claimed his prize at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Tifton.

“I was getting ready to leave Thomasville, and a friend urged me to go to the store before I left,” he said. “There were two Maximum Money Madness tickets laying on the counter, and I decided to buy a ticket.”

Swami Food Mart, 15096 U.S. Highway 19 S. in Thomasville, sold the winning ticket, and Pleas scratched the winning ticket while in the car.

“I feel just lovely,” he said. “I’ll fix on my house.”

Maximum Money Madness is a new Georgia Lottery instant game with cash prizes of up to $20,000.

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.
