Garden City man wins a jumbo $50,000

Monday, February 19, 2007

ATLANTA – A Garden City man is celebrating a jumbo Georgia Lottery win. Clyde Steptoe played the instant game Jumbo Bucks Classic and won a $50,000 top prize.

"I just couldn't believe it," said Steptoe, who scratched the ticket in his truck. "I had to keep looking at it. I was just shocked."

Flash Foods #0003, located at 1025 W. Oglethorpe Hwy. in Hinesville, sold the lucky ticket.

Steptoe, 43, is married with a grown son. He is employed by an equipment rental company.

According to Steptoe, he plans to pay bills with his lottery winnings.

"I'll also probably buy a new car," he said.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.8 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 1 million students have received HOPE, and more than 790,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
