ATLANTA – Deborah Scott, a resident of Perry, won the top prize in Friday’s regularly scheduled Fantasy 5 drawing. The 33-year-old matched all five numbers and won $290,166.
Ms. Scott checked her ticket while on the telephone with her fiancÃ©, who read out the winning numbers from a printout of the draw results.
“I couldn’t believe it,” says Ms. Scott. “I’m still kind of in shock.”
Ms. Scott, who works as an administrator, will buy a new car and save her winnings.
