ATLANTA – Car dealership manager David Bradley recently closed the deal on a lottery win. He purchased a $50,000 Pay Day instant game ticket and won the $50,000 top prize.
The 56-year-old was shocked to find out that he was a winner after he scratched the ticket while still standing in the store.
Mr. Bradley, a resident of Covington, plans to use his winnings to pay bills.
BP Food Mart, located at 2083 Crowell Road in Covington, sold the winning ticket.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.2 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.
