Lucky Woman Stops for Gas and Fills Up with $500,000 Lottery Win

Thursday, August 17, 2006

ATLANTA – Angela Hall was on her way to Florida for some fun in the sun when she stopped for gas. While filling up, she played Jumbo Jumbo Bucks and won the Georgia Lottery instant game's $500,000 top prize.

Shell Food Mart, located at 5375 Glade Rd. in Acworth, sold the lucky ticket.

According to Hall, 41, she played Jumbo Jumbo Bucks because she likes the colors on the ticket. Now the color she's seeing is green.

Hall scratched the ticket as her friend, Ken, drove and was thrilled to win a half-million dollars. She says that she will share her winnings with her friend. She also plans to buy a new home and pay bills.

Hall, a convenience store manager, resides in Sevierville, Tenn.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.4 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.
