Lucky Georgia Lottery Player Wins New Car

July 31, 2015 – One lucky Georgia Lottery player is enjoying the new car smell today after winning the very first of 10 Kia Optimas the Lottery plans to give away over the next few months.

The winner can drive away in their prize thanks to the Georgia Lottery’s Jackpot scratch-off games and the corresponding online contest.  The first of ten weekly drawings was held yesterday.

The Jackpot second chance contest will give away a 2015 Kia Optima EX each week until October 1.  Each car has an estimated retail value of $25,000, and includes leather seats, a push-button ignition, Bluetooth hands-free systems and Sirius XM satellite radio.

Georgia Lottery players can only enter non-winning Jackpot series tickets into the second chance contest, and must be registered for the Lottery’s VIP club to enter.  According to the contest’s official rules, the Lottery will only accept online entries, mailed entries will be thrown out.

Before you start dreaming about your new Kia Optima, remember that the Jackpot series tickets each offer incredible cash prizes, too.  There are four different tickets available, including the most affordable $1 ticket and most expensive $20 ticket, and the mid-range $3 and $5 tickets.  Together, the new Jackpot series of tickets offer millions in potential winnings.

Top prizes on the games range from $50,000 – which players can win from the $1 ticket – to $3 million, the top prize for the $20 Jackpot ticket.  With that kind of money, you could afford a whole fleet of new Kias… or maybe one much, much more expensive car.
