ATLANTA – A Wheeler County woman is celebrating a win from the Georgia Lottery. Antonia Brown of Glenwood won a $100,000 prize playing the instant game 50X The Money.
Brown, 36, purchased her lucky ticket at Flash Foods #0108, 101 W. Second Ave. in Glenwood, and scratched it in the store.
“I couldn’t believe it,” the mother of two exclaimed.
She intends to pay off bills with her winnings.
The Georgia Lottery instant game 50X The Money is loaded with prizes of up to $1 million.
