ATLANTA – Richard Miller says he’s always wanted a Corvette, and now he’s cruising in his dream car. Miller played the Georgia Lottery instant game Corvette Cash and won a brand-new Corvette Convertible.
“I’ve wanted a Corvette all of my life!” exclaims Miller, a resident of Augusta. “I’m 62, and I finally got one.”
Georgia Lottery retailer Get It To Go II, located at 3232 Dean Bridge Rd. in Augusta, sold the winning ticket.
Miller purchased his lucky ticket when he heard that an Augusta woman won a car with a Corvette Cash ticket she purchased when she stopped for gas while traveling through Macon.
“Hearing that someone in the area won made me think that I could win too,” he shares.
Miller works as a heavy equipment operator for the city of Augusta. He and his wife, Willie Lee, are the parents of one daughter and three sons.
Corvette Cash is a $3 game with prizes up to $75,000 and the chance to instantly win one of 10 Chevrolet Corvette Convertibles. The Georgia Lottery will pay required minimum federal and state tax withholding, sales tax, tag and title fees for each vehicle prize winner.
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.
