News release from the Georgia Lottery

ATLANTA – Ahead of expecting his first child, Dalton Davis is proud of winning a prize from the Georgia Lottery.

Davis, 20, won a $400,000 top prize playing the instant game 20X The Money. "I'm thinking about buying a house," shared Davis, who lives in Thonotosassa, Fla., just outside of Tampa. SpeeGo Gas, 224 Johnson Road in Albany, sold the winning ticket.

Davis, who is expecting his bundle of joy next spring, said he's excited about winning the lottery. "I couldn't even sleep," he recalled. "I scratched the ticket right there in the store."

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $12.7 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 1.3 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.1 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
