ATLANTA – A Canton mother has won green from Georgia Lottery Black. Vondia King, 46, claimed her $10,000 prize Monday.
“My husband scratched the ticket,” she said. “I didn’t believe it.”
King and her husband, Daryl, will use the prize to pay bills. They also plan to take their two daughters on a vacation to Florida.
Georgia Lottery Black is an instant game with prizes up to $1 million.
The Kings purchased their winning ticket at CITGO Waleska, 7291 Reinhardt College Parkway, Waleska.
