A teen from Georgia has made history after winning a $48 million jackpot, becoming the youngest winner in the state’s lottery history.

The lucky winner purchased their ticket from a convenience store in Alpharetta, Georgia. After matching all six numbers, they became the state’s youngest ever jackpot winner. The teen, who wishes to remain anonymous, chose to take the lump sum payment of $30.9 million, rather than the 30-year annuity option.
The teen’s winnings make them one of the largest lottery winners in the history of the Georgia Lottery. The state’s previous record for youngest jackpot winner was held by a 20-year-old who won $43 million in 2016. The lottery commission has since congratulated the teen on their win, and commended them for their wise choice of taking the lump sum payment.
The lucky winner is still processing the enormity of their win, and have not yet made any decisions on how to spend the money. However, they have stated that they plan to use some of the money to invest in their future. They also plan to give back to their community, and have already made a generous donation to a local charity.
This inspiring story of a teen making history with their lottery win is sure to be remembered for years to come. The teen’s wise decision to take the lump sum payment, as well as their plans to invest in their future and give back to their community, are sure to be an inspiration to many.
