Columbus housekeeper wins tidy $149K Fantasy 5 prize

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

ATLANTA – A Columbus housekeeper has won a tidy sum from the Georgia Lottery. Martisha Williams, 34, is one of two players to clean up a $149,259 Fantasy 5 jackpot prize, matching all five winning numbers from the Nov. 1 drawing.

Williams claimed her prize Monday afternoon at the Georgia Lottery District Office in Columbus.

She used a combination of family birthdays to clinch the jackpot. Jerry’s Food Mart, 3874 Saint Marys Road in Columbus, sold the winning ticket. The second jackpot winning ticket was sold in Douglasville.

In discovering her prize, Williams called the Georgia Lottery’s Player Information Hot Line.

“It was crazy. I was screaming and crying,” she said.

The lucky winner has one son, age 12.

“I feel excellent,” Williams shared. “I want to get a car.”

Winning numbers from the Nov. 1 Fantasy 5 drawing were: 3-7-12-22-32.

Since its first year, the Georgia Lottery Corp. has returned more than $13.8 billion to the state of Georgia for education. All Georgia Lottery profits go to pay for specific educational programs, including Georgia’s HOPE Scholarship Program and Georgia’s Pre-K Program. More than 1.4 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.2 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
