Government analyst claims $10,000 in lottery winnings

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

ATLANTA – A Warner Robins woman won $10,000 playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Mini Mega Bucks.

Vicki Richardson, 50, purchased her winning ticket at Crestview Food Mart, 3216 Highway 41 N. in Byron, while running errands. She checked her ticket when she arrived home.

"I said to myself that I wouldn't get excited," said Richardson, an analyst for the federal government. "I’m trying to be calm about it, but I am excited."

She is undecided on how she'll spend her winnings.

"I can’t believe it," she said. "I am such a lucky person."

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.
