CNN producer wins Ga. Lottery twice

Georgia LotteryGeorgia Lottery: CNN producer wins Ga. Lottery twice

Rating:

Latest win is $1 million scratch game jackpot

She's another recent two-timer.

After winning $100,000 in November, a CNN producer has won big again in the Georgia Lottery.

This time Jennifer Hauser of Atlanta scratched her way to a $1 million win on the instant game 50X The Money.

Hauser, 29, claimed her $1 million prize Monday.

"I was a little numb," Hauser said of her recent win. "I didn't know what to think."

She bought the ticket at the Roswell Food Mart, 5645 Roswell Road N.E., in Atlanta.

When she won the $100,000 playing the instant game Georgia Lottery Black in November, Hauser bought a new car and paid bills.

She said she may use some of her current prize to buy a new car for her mother.

Another recent dual-winner

On Feb. 8, Erik Holmes, 44, claimed a $500,000 lottery prize, less than a year after he won $104,000.  Holmes claimed his $500,000 prize on a new scratch-off game called $7 Million Jackpot.

The Home Depot manager was leaving work when he bought the ticket at Ponce Food Mart, 689 Boulevard N.E., Atlanta.

He said he used his previous prize from March 2011 to help family and friends.

Meanwhile, officials report that the Georgia Lottery has experienced its best sales week ever.

Sales for the week ending Feb. 11 soared to more than $101.2 million, more than $5 million ahead of the previous record set in 2007, according to a news statement.

"Sales were strong across the board with Powerball and KENO! having their highest sales week in Georgia Lottery history. Cash 3, Cash 4 and instant games enjoyed their highest sales week of the fiscal year," according to the release. "Instant games led the pack with nearly $68 million in sales. Last week's $336 million Powerball jackpot pulled in over $9 million," according to the Lottery Corp.

      These people are extremely lucky, some of us have never hit anything more than $200 despite years of playing.

      Very sobering

        Most of us couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with a Mac truck. lol

        I am very happy for Ms. Hauser and her second win.

        Looking forward to hearing about her next win.

        Way to go Ms. Hauser.

          Lucky lady, I'm happy for her.

          Maybe she'll get lucky and get a better job now where she doesn't have to be on an Obama cheerleading squad like CNN.

              Each had exciting wins!  I wonder how much each spent gambling each month, on average?

                Congrats to Jennifer! I will settle for just 1 win....but to do it twice is really special.

                    You are a big winner!  I've never won more that $50 bucks on the lottery.

                     

                    Congrats to the lucky winners!!
