ATLANTA – Interior designer Tommie Corbin recently laid out a Georgia Lottery win. He played Giant Jumbo Bucks, an instant game, and won the $150,000 top prize.
The 56-year-old was on his way to work when he learned of his lottery win. “Just before I got on the train, I started scratching,” Mr. Corbin explained.
Mr. Corbin, a resident of Atlanta, plans to enjoy his winnings.
Big H Foods, located at 2784 Bankhead Hwy. NW in Atlanta, sold Mr. Corbin his winning ticket.
Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned over $8.2 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 900,000 students have received HOPE Scholarships, and more than 700,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
