ATLANTA – Dalton resident Nicole Terry bought a $200 Million Cash Spectacular instant game ticket because the color of the ticket caught her eye. She scratched her ticket and the amount of the prize also got her attention. Ms. Terry won $50,000.
Ms. Terry was at home when she discovered that she was a winner. “I almost passed out,” the 26-year-old describes.
Ms. Terry plans to use her winnings to buy a new car and a new house.
The winning ticket was purchased at Cowboy’s Food Mart #3656. The store is located at 220 Connector 3 in Dalton.
