ATLANTA – Pamela Hampton of Ellenwood is excited over winning a hefty prize from the Georgia Lottery. Hampton, a Pre-Kindergarten school bus driver in Fulton County, has won a $400,000 top prize playing the instant game 20X The Money.
Hampton, 59, claimed her prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
“I bought it while on my lunch break,” she explained. “I was in the store when I scratched it.”
Chevron Food Mart, 2050 Sylvan Road SW in Atlanta, sold the winning ticket.
“I had to focus my eyes. I couldn’t believe it,” the grandmother of four said. “The clerk and I both started jumping up and down.”
Hampton, who has two children with her husband, Larry, intends to pay off bills with the windfall.
