ATLANTA – The Georgia Lottery Corporation is handing over the keys to another new car. Linda Robbins played the instant game Mustang Money and won a 2005 Ford Mustang Convertible.
Mrs. Robbins used $15 she won the night before on another instant game to treat herself to breakfast. On her way to breakfast, she used a part of those winnings to purchase her lucky Mustang Money ticket.
Ginger's Grocery, located at 1600 Dews Pond Rd. in Calhoun, sold the winning Mustang Money ticket.
Mrs. Robbins was in her vehicle in the retailer's parking lot when she scratched the ticket. She returned to the store and asked the owner, "Is this right?"
"I'm still in shock, but I'm very excited," says Mrs. Robbins. "I called all my family and they couldn't believe it."
Mrs. Robbins, 42, works as a sales consultant at Farmer's Furniture in Calhoun. She and her husband Danny have two sons – Chris, 22, and Kevin, 18.
Mustang Money is a $3 game with a $75,000 top prize and the chance to instantly win one of 10 2005 Ford Mustang Convertibles. Mrs. Robbins's new car is the third awarded by the Georgia Lottery Corporation to date.
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.
