RETIRED DALLAS, GA. RESIDENT CLAIMS $7.5M MEGA MILLIONS PRIZE
November 3, 2016

Christina Ford of Dallas, Ga. came forward today as the winner of Georgia’s unclaimed $7,500,000 Mega Millions prize. She was one of two winners to split a $15 million jackpot July 22.

Winning numbers for the July 22 Mega Millions drawing were: 8-24-25-26-30, and the Mega Ball was 7.

Ford played using the Quik Pik option and was in disbelief when she saw the winning numbers drawn on television.

“I thought it was a dream,” she said. “I kept saying, ‘Yeah, right. This can’t be true.’ ”

After three months of planning, the lucky winner decided to come forward.

Ford, 64, claimed her prize at Georgia Lottery headquarters Tuesday. She intends to use her winnings to vacation and share with her family.

Kroger #0634, 8876 Dallas Acworth Highway, Dallas, sold the winning ticket. The second ticket that shared the $15 million jackpot prize was purchased in Virginia.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $17.8 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 1.7 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.4 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
