ATLANTA – A Catoosa County grocery store cashier has lined up a Georgia Lottery win. Heather Hall of Ringgold played the instant game 2012 Cash Jubilee and won $2,012 a week for a year, totaling $104,624.
“I still, honestly, don’t believe it,” a stunned Hall said. “It doesn’t seem real.”
The 22-year-old and her mother were grocery shopping when the two stopped for gas and a bag of ice.
Sunset Market #0006, 141 Highway 41 in Ringgold, sold the lucky ticket.
“I was freaking out,” Hall said.
The lucky lottery winner, at the moment, has no immediate plans for her windfall.
