Leesburg man wins $100,000 in 'South Cash'

from the Georgia Lottery-

ATLANTA - Luck has left an open door for a Leesburg man who won the lottery. George Aman Jr., a cabinetmaker, won a $100,000 top prize playing the Georgia Lottery instant game Lotto South Cash.

While on his way to work, Aman stopped for a local newspaper at Express Lane Food Mart #0017, 1505 Philema Road S. in Leesburg, and purchased a ticket.

"I stuck it in my back pocket and didn't think anything of it," he said.

He scratched it later in the day while at work. "I just fell on the floor," he said. "It was a total adrenaline rush."

Aman, 51, and his wife, Marie, have no immediate plans. "Winning the lottery is great," he exclaimed.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has returned more than $10.3 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 Pre-K Program. More than 1.1 million students have received HOPE, and more than 940,000 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary pre kindergarten program.
