Ft. Benning worker celebrates Labor Day with $10K win

From Georgia Lottery Corps.

ATLANTA – A Columbus woman's Labor Day weekend is off to a fantastic start. Gwinnett Moore, 51, snagged a $10,000 Georgia Lottery prize in Thursday's Maximum Green Extra Chance drawing.

Moore watched the televised draw results.

"I was sitting there looking at it on TV," she said. "I just sat there in a daze."

Moore claimed her prize Friday afternoon.

A married mother of one, Moore works as a housekeeper at Fort Benning. She plans to use her prize to pay bills.

"It feels good," she said.

Maximum Green is an instant game with $5 million top prizes.

Players can enter non-winning tickets in the monthly Maximum Green Extra Chance drawings for a chance to win one of 10 monthly prizes of $10,000.

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.
