ATLANTA - Brenda Edwards of Albany correctly matched all five winning numbers in the Georgia Lottery's May 30 Fantasy 5 drawing and won $277,886.
The winning numbers for the May 30 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 6-12-30-31-35.
Ms. Edwards, 54, was in disbelief after finding out about her good luck. "I couldn't believe it," she said. "I have never won anything this big in my life." Ms. Edwards has yet to decide what to do with her recent winnings besides "paying some bills."
The winning Fantasy 5 ticket was purchased at Oasis #0371 in Albany. Oasis #0371 is located at 1608 W. Broad Ave.
Georgia Lottery retailers selling winning Fantasy 5 tickets receive a retailer incentive bonus of $2,000. The retailer incentive bonus increases by $2,000 each time Fantasy 5 rolls. If more than one winning top prize ticket is sold, the retailers selling the top prize winning tickets will share the bonus. Oasis #0371 will receive a retailer incentive bonus of $8,000.
