ATLANTA – A Flintstone resident has slated a half-million dollar Georgia Lottery win. Casey Frazier, 34, played the instant game Jumbo Jumbo Bucks and won the $500,000 top prize.
Flintstone Food Market, located at 3258 Chattanooga Valley Rd. in Flintstone, sold the winning ticket.
Mrs. Frazier scratched her ticket in the store. “I was jumping and screaming,” she recalls.
Her husband James was with her at the time. “I didn’t believe it,” he says. “I was jumping around too.”
The Fraziers have one son and two daughters. The family plans to use their winnings for their future. Mr. Frazier adds that he’s considering a new truck.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $7.8 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 Prekindergarten Program. More than 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
