The Newnan Times-Herald

A convenience store in Newnan sold a top prize ticket worth $350,000 from the Georgia Lottery’s $350,000 Gold Mine scratcher.

The ticket was purchased at BP Food Mart, located at 101 Greison Trail in Newnan.

The winner claimed the prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters.

The $350,000 Gold Mine instant game offers players a top prize of $350,000, a second prize of $10,000 and many other great prizes.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $19.2 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 Pre-K Program.

More than 1.8 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.6 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
