ATLANTA – Amy Isdell, 33, of Grovetown is enjoying a $50,000 prize from the Georgia Lottery. Isdell won her top prize playing the popular instant game Jumbo Bucks Classic.
Working in sales, the lucky winner purchased her ticket while on her lunch break.
Fuel Express, 2700 Peach Orchard Road in Augusta, sold the winning ticket. Isdell scratched it at work.
“I didn’t believe it,” she said.
Isdell, who has one child, anticipates paying off her bills.
