Machine Operator Wins $50,000 Playing Jumbo Bucks Classic

Wednesday, February 15, 2006

ATLANTA – Annette Collins decided to purchase a Jumbo Bucks Classic instant game ticket recently and the experience has confirmed her belief that there’s always a chance you can win. Ms. Collins won the game’s $50,000 top prize.

After scratching the ticket at home, Ms. Collins immediately called her son to make sure that she was really a winner. “It was a real shock,” the 47-year-old explained.

Ms. Collins, a resident of Nicholson, plans to use her winnings to pay bills and purchase a house for her mother.

Foodmart, located at 1190 Commerce Rd. in Athens, sold Ms. Collins her winning ticket.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $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.
