ATLANTA – One Marietta mother has received a “green” gift for Mother’s Day. Blakely Wolf, 49, won a $206,502 jackpot prize from the May 13 Fantasy 5 drawing with a ticket matching all five winning numbers.
“My husband called me into the living room this morning and told me,” said Wolf, who has a 9-year-old son. “We were flabbergasted.”
Her husband purchased the ticket and presented it to her Monday morning, Wolf said. She promptly claimed her prize at Georgia Lottery headquarters in Atlanta.
Winning numbers from the May 13 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 3-23-26-29-38.
Kroger #0657, 2960 Shallowford Road N.E. in Marietta, sold the lucky Quik Pik.
“I just never thought it would be possible,” she said. “It’s cool.”
Wolf said she anticipates taking a vacation and paying off bills with the winnings.
