Store Manager Oversees $200,000 Power Payday Win

Thursday, December 8, 2005

ATLANTA - Store manager Ella Ruth Troupe recently oversaw a $200,000 lottery win. Mrs. Troupe played Power Payday, a Georgia Lottery instant game, and won the top prize.

The 55-year-old was in disbelief when she scratched her winning ticket. She showed it to a friend, who verified that it was a top prize winning ticket.

Mrs. Troupe, a resident of Douglas, plans to save her winnings for retirement.

The winning ticket was purchased at Aden’s Minit Market #74, located on Hwy 441 in Broxton.

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.
