ATLANTA – The holidays are here for a lucky Valdosta man. Donald Primrose played the Georgia Lottery instant game Bah Humbucks and won one of the game’s $225,000 top prizes.
Frank’s Market #0001, located at 800 N. Troup St. in Valdosta, sold the winning ticket. Primrose, 51, scratched his ticket in the store.
"I turned into a statue," he says with a laugh. "I just stood there and looked."
Primrose is excited that his win on Bah Humbucks, a holiday-themed game, comes just in time for the holidays.
"I'm going to put some in the bank, pay some bills, and do a little bit of spending," he shares.
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.
