About the Georgia Lottery

In November 1992, The Georgia Lottery Corporation (GLC) was formed to operate the new state lottery. The lottery’s mission was to contribute to funding education in the state as per the Lottery for Education Act.

Since its launch, the lottery has seen net sales of over $80 billion and raised more than $21 billion for education. The lottery has funded college scholarships and tuition grants, with over 1.8 million students attending local colleges with HOPE scholarships. Another beneficiary of lottery contributions is the Georgia Prekindergarten Program for all four-year-olds in the state – over 1.6 million children have attended the program. In addition, the state’s public schools have received more than $1.8 billion in capital outlay and technology funding.

The GLC has about 370 staff across its eight district offices. Around 8,700 authorized retailers statewide sell lottery tickets.

Biggest Georgia Lottery Winners

Georgia is one of the top states that loves playing the lottery. The average resident spends $515.17 per year on lottery tickets (the average U.S. adult spends about $288 per year). That makes the Peach State the fifth highest-spending state in the country. With five percent of Georgia residents saying they buy a ticket every day, the lottery had sales of more than $4.02 billion in 2017.

Here are the biggest Georgia winners who really got some bang for their buck:

  • Ira Curry from Stone Mountain bought a Mega Millions ticket on the spur of the moment while on her way to work. The insurance executive won half the $648 million jackpot in the December 17, 2013 draw. She chose the cash option payout and received $173,819,742.50 before taxes. The 56-year-old grandmother said she chose her winning numbers based on family birthdays and the lucky number 7. The other winner was delivery driver Steve Tran of California.
  • An $83 million Mega Millions jackpot was won on November 18, 2016 by ADirectConnection LLC.
  • A $77.1 million Powerball jackpot ticket was purchased on June 29, 2011. Sadly, the prize was never claimed and eventually expired. The identity of the winner is unknown.
  • Christina Ford of Dallas, Georgia won a $7.5 million Mega Millions prize on July 22, 2016. The retired 64-year-old split the $15 million jackpot with Kevin Young of Virginia.

How to Claim a Georgia Lottery Prize

Product Information

Intro to Advantage Gold

If you’re looking for a way to pick the best lotto numbers to win your lottery game, Advantage Gold is the solution. This program uses lotto history, which we provide for hundreds of games around the world, in order to help you find out which numbers have a good chance of hitting in the next drawing and which numbers to avoid. You can use the program’s Smart Picks for a fast and easy method, or use any of the charts to look for patterns and choose the numbers yourself.

For best results, use Advantage Gold to choose about half the numbers in your game, and then use a wheel (like those in the Wheel Gold programs) to give you sets of tickets to buy that will guarantee you’ll win a specific minimum prize. There are no guarantees without using a wheel.
