ATLANTA – A Coca-Cola employee is drinking in the joys of a Georgia Lottery win. Timothy Michael Clancy matched all six numbers in the Lotto South drawing on August 27 and won the $3 million jackpot. The Powder Springs resident pre-selected the cash option and will receive $1,502,890 before taxes.
The winning numbers for the Lotto South drawing on August 27 were: 7-16-21-30-39-49.
Mr. Clancy was watching television when he saw his winning Quik Pik numbers flash across the screen. He got a printout of the draw results from a Georgia Lottery retailer to confirm the great news.
“We were so excited,” says Mr. Clancy’s wife, Lita.
Mr. Clancy, 50, works in sales for the Coca-Cola Company. Mrs. Clancy, 43, is a corporate trainer of cooks for Hooters Restaurants.
The Clancys plan to use their winnings to prepare for their family’s future. “We’re going to pay off the house and cars, save for our daughter’s education, and invest the rest of it so we can retire early,” Mr. Clancy shares. They also plan to extend the deck of their home and finish their basement.
Racetrac #0610, located at 4597 Jimmy Lee Smith Pkwy. in Hiram, sold the lucky ticket. Retailers are also winners with the retailer incentive bonus. Any Georgia Lottery retailer who sells a winning Lotto South jackpot ticket can earn the $25,000 retailer incentive bonus. If more than one winning jackpot ticket is sold in Georgia, the retailers selling the winning tickets will share the $25,000 retailer bonus. Racetrac will receive a $25,000 retailer incentive bonus.
As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from Lotto South sales will benefit education in the state of Georgia. 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.
