ATLANTA - Patrice Wilson Taylor sent her husband, Antonio, to a Georgia Lottery retailer to get a printed report of the winning Fantasy 5 numbers when she heard that someone in Ashburn won. The top prize winner turned out to be Mrs. Taylor. She won $88,735 in the June 20 drawing.
The winning numbers were: 3-8-24-25-31.
The Piggly Wiggly assistant manager plans to use her winnings to pay bills and take a trip to the Bahamas with her husband.
The winning ticket was purchased at G-Nez Express Stop located at 507 Jefferson Street in Ashburn. A second winning top prize ticket for the June 20 drawing was purchased in Griffin.
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. G-Nez Express Stop will receive a retailer incentive bonus of $3,000.
