Thursday, August 11, 2011

ATLANTA – Luck can sometimes come in threes. Esther Kelechi of Fayetteville has won a $20,000 prize from being selected as the latest winner in the Aug. 3 $3,000,000 Taxes Paid Extra Chance Drawing.

This is her third win in four years, and her second win within months.

Kelechi, 50, was selected in the Maximum Green Extra Chance Drawing for the month of June, winning $10,000.

In 2008 she won $1 million on an instant ticket.

The Georgia Lottery instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid is loaded with cash prizes of up to $3 million after taxes.

Players can submit non-winning tickets for entry into the $3,000,000 Taxes Paid Weekly Extra Chance Drawings for a chance to win $20,000 after taxes. Drawings are held on Wednesdays.

All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.3 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
