About the Georgia Lottery

The Georgia (GA) lottery was approved by voters on Tuesday, November 3, 1992, with the creation of funds for education being the main reason for its popularity and of course the chance to win the jackpot! There was some considerable controversy surrounding the lottery's formation, as the state of Georgia chose to contract management of the lottery to GTECH, a company from Rhode Island, despite their bid being 33% higher than the other contenders.

Regardless of this, lottery ticket sales began on Tuesday, June 29, 1993, for the Instant Cash and Georgia Millionaire games, which were both instant hits. These two lotto games sold more than 52 million tickets in their first week alone. This success continued as the GA lotto had the most successful launch in U.S lottery history, after selling $1.1 billion lottery tickets in its first year.

Since then, the GA lottery has continued to prosper and now offers seven lotto games such as Georgia FIVE, Fantasy 5 and Midday Georgia FIVE. However, Georgia's biggest lotteries are now Mega Millions and Powerball, which regularly have jackpots of many millions of dollars. One of these jackpots went to Portal, Bulloch County, resident Robert Harris whose winning results earned him a massive $275 million in 2008, after his lucky numbers all turned up in the Georgia Mega Millions draw.

Then, in 2003, lucky winner Stephen Cooke of Roswell, Georgia, turned up to the Georgia lottery headquarters to collect a winning ticket worth $13 million, without realizing that he had another ticket with the same winning numbers on netting him $26 million. The story continues that when he arrived back home he found another two tickets worth $300, which featured the numbers of his relatives birthdays. Now that's one lucky guy!

Proceeds from the Georgia state lotto go primarily to education, with an impressive average of $1 million per day going to state educational programs. Of the income from ticket sales, 50% goes straight back to players in the form of prizes, 5% goes to retailers and the rest goes to education and other areas of state interest.
