Former Albany broadcaster wins $10,000 … again

Friday, September 2, 2011

ATLANTA – A retired Albany broadcaster has quite an item to report. Roy Douglas Oliver, 72, won $10,000 in Thursday’s Maximum Green Extra Chance drawing.

Oliver won the same prize in June’s monthly drawing.

“If you continue to enter them, I guess your odds are as good as anybody else,” he said. “It’s luck I guess.”

Oliver claimed his most recent prize Friday afternoon at the lottery’s Tifton office.

“I was just really surprised,” he said. “I never thought about winning again.”

As with his last win, Oliver plans to put a portion of the prize in a college fund for his young grandsons.

Maximum Green is an instant game with $5 million top prizes.

Players can enter non-winning tickets in the monthly Maximum Green Extra Chance drawings for a chance to win one of 10 monthly prizes of $10,000.
