• Lithonia man matches nothing, collects $250K prize


    ATLANTA - A quarter of a million dollars has popped up for one lucky Lithonia man playing the new Georgia Lottery daily game All or Nothing. Terrell Parker Sr., who celebrates his 31st birthday Tuesday, won a $250,000 top prize from the March 13 All or Nothing evening drawing.


    Parker did not match any of the numbers from the drawing, winning the top prize. He claimed his prize Monday at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.


    “I liked All or Nothing as soon as it came out,” said Parker, a fork lift driver. “I’m shocked but humbled at the same time that I’ve won.”


    He and his wife, Sheena, have two children, ages 6 and 9.


    In addition to his $250,000 win, Parker played eight draws, winning an additional $22.


    Chevron Food Mart, 343 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd. S.W. in Atlanta, sold the winning ticket.


    All or Nothing is a $2 game that offers prizes of up to $250,000 with four daily drawings.


    Players can win the top prize by matching all or none of the 12 numbers drawn.


    Tickets for All or Nothing went on sale statewide March 2.


    Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $15 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 1.6 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.3 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
