ATLANTA – A Savannah woman won $10,000 playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Junior Jumbo Bucks.
Mary Deloach, 63, bought her lucky ticket at Smart Stop, 1114 Abercorn St. in Savannah.
"I wanted to holler, but I didn't because I was in public," the grandmother of two said. "I was so excited. I couldn't believe it."
Mary and her husband, Norman, have two adult children. With her winnings, Deloach will help her daughter, who is in the process of relocating.
"I'm just happy to have won," she exclaimed.
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.
