Construction Worker Nails a $250,000 Lottery Win

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

ATLANTA – A construction worker is hauling a quarter-million dollar Georgia Lottery win. Jamie Allen played $150,000,000 Slots of Luck and won the instant game's $250,000 top prize.

F&J #0009, located at 2600 Highway 17 in Young Harris, sold the winning ticket. Allen scratched his ticket at the store and says he yelled out, "All right!"

Allen, a resident of Marble, N.C., works in Atlanta as a project manager for a construction company. He was traveling home when he stopped for gas and purchased his lucky ticket.

According to Allen, he plans to save his Georgia Lottery winnings. "I'll probably just put it in the bank."

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.6 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.
